Hello All

I have been quite content using "firebird" and am
ready to put together a new system. I have read some
complaints on the recent release from mozilla (aka
firefox). Any special reasons to go to or avoid
firefox -- other than it is the newest (which really
is not amopng my motivations) ?

Thanks

The extension API changed for Firefox and for 0.9 release and the new nightlies after the first of May,so some of the old extensions might not work corectly,other than that i dont any serious reason not to update your old version,but if you do so,might be better if you take an April release or just the first nightly release of the May,is this what i use also and i dont have any single problem.In anycase you can always wait for the new 0.9 release,it wont take long,maybe less than 2 weeks or so.
The only thing you have to know is that extensions must repacked-rewritten,and maybe some of the authors might not be ready for that.

Quote Ben Goodger-Leader of the firefox team.
*"The goals of these changes are to make it more difficult for extensions to do things they shouldn't be, while making packaging and installing extensions easier."*
