    I don't believe it's a release yet. A release candidate, yes.

    majorgeeks has a link.

    Ditto...

    btw, I simply downloaded and installed straight over top.
    I even did that with the first version of 1.5, straight over 1.09... no probs. [for me]

  10. Doesn't 1.5 have the new improved update thingie? Does that mean i can autodownload 1.5.1 without any uninstall? Just like how i patch IE?

    I like to read this. Firefox is still #1 for me, including Thunderbird.

    No, I'm not going to say anything bad about MSIE and MS Outlook.
    Without MSIE and MS Outlook, Firefox and Thunderbird would look normal, average, nothing special ... :)

    I have just tried the new firefox 1.5.0.1 and like ver 1.5 it still does not accept mouse guestures from StrokeIt. Tried all the workarounds that have been suggested for 1.5 and nothing works, so have gone back to 1.07 where they do work.
