More Info & Download
The expected Firefox 1.5 is already available in lots of websites for download. However itÂ´s not available yet at Mozilla website, it has not been announced officially.
I reach one of those downloads and I just notice a big change while installing. Most of your old extensions are not supported in this release, at least in the version I have at the moment, which I believe will be the same â€œofficiallyâ€. So I advice you to backup all your extensions just for precaution.
One of my main concerns was the stability of this version but no problems at all until now.
Enough talking, here is the link for the download.
Download here from Mozilla. (Might go down however)
