    I won't bother. No reason to break addon compatibility for something that offers nothing new.

    Is there a 64-bit version of Firefox 5 for Windows? (I know there's a fairly stable 64-bit alpha release of Firefox 4 aka Minefield so I was expecting Firefox 5 to be fully squared away in that regard)

    No there isn't.

    Nightly 6.0 (formerly Minefield) has x64 builds.

    [edit]
    The significant changes happen in Nightly anyways...it's fairly stable to run.

    I checked briefly this 5 beta 1 and found something new. When printing text web pages to PDF with hardware acceleration enabled, this version creates small, text PDF and not big, graphical, non-searchable PDF as before with v. 4.

    This is important for me, as I frequently print to PDF to save documents, transaction vouchers, etc.
