Just released with the website details to follow shortly
Anyone else having problems with this? I installed it over 8.01 and it refused to run, crashes on startup. So I uninstalled it and tried again. Still broken. Put 8.01 back works fine... I don't want to delete my profile unless I know it will benefit something.
I haven't tried it yet. I'll wait for it to come in an update I think.
Currently in BETA channel
Moves to RELEASED on December 20, 2011
It's not yet the 20th in my part of the planet ... give it 22 mins ...
It is on MajorGeeks but I will wait till it is up on mozilla(dot)orange
I pulled a copy off of Mozilla's server and one from Majorgeeks and they both have the same checksum.
Got it. Firefox 9.0 installed just fine over Firefox 8.0
Link is at the bottom of the page. My copy said you are currently on the release update channel.
It is. Good to know.
I installed it on my desktop without issues. I don't know why the laptop wants to give me fits. Maybe it is related to that failed Kaspersky removal the other day. I guess I'll spend a few more hours messing with it.
Strange, I'm still on 8.0 and the 'About Mozilla Firefox' window says that my Firefox is up-to-date even with Sandboxie and AppGuard disabled.
If you want it now there is no harm in pulling it from one of the download sites.
Match those and there should be no problem.
It's not an official release yet.
True, but it will be the same file tomorrow.
I mean that's why he can't update through the updater.
Ok, got it.
Everyone keep in mind that if you use an AV or suite with Firefox addons they likely will not get an update until tomorrow, if not longer.
No problems so far, except incorrect welcome screen.
So all these iprovements are already in the nightlies, Aurora etc, right? Because I've honestly not seen any real world differences between Chrome/FF/IE9 and I run the latest versions of each. It all comes down to no. of tabs/extensions.
you can backup your profile using mozbackup from here: http://mozbackup.jasnapaka.com/
i`m using the profile from v3 on v8 and it runs with no problems at all.
Same thing happened to me. Upgrade from 8.0.1 to 9.0 wont stat after install. I send a crash report to Mozilla and reverted back to v8.0.1. It might be due to a add-on but I am not sure. I will wait for the official update which might be delayed if more people are effected by this crash at startup problem.
I bet this has something to do with timezones.
The problems lies with addons. If you have "Addon Compatibility Reporter.xpi", you need to uninstall it and leave it uninstalled. Then Firefox 9.0 will not crash. Tried it on three computers.
Hello KOR, yes I have the addon compatibility reporter installed but if it is an addon that is causing this problem then I will wait as I need all my addons. I only have three installed by the way; Addblock, nosquint and noscript.
The addon compatibility reporter did not cause any problem in previous updates, I have had it installed since v5.
AdBlock Plus and NoScript are being actively developed and shouldn't be incompatible. I don't know about nosquint.
Well, I'm still going to wait for the official British English version update, either through the updater or the official page. Ya certainly don't get all this bed-wetting excitement with SeaMonkey upgrades ... thank god.
