The actual release is out now...

http://www.mozilla.com/products/download.html?product=firefox-1.5&os=win&lang=en-US

(if anyone can pretty up that link...feel free)

I like it so far, except that half my themes aren't yet compatible. It's my understanding that a bunch of popular extensions haven't yet been tested with 1.5 either, so be prepared to wait or step back.

So far my favorite new toy is being able to drag & drop the tabs around.

YES!

And ForecastFox seems to be working, so I'm a happy camper for now.

I installed it, and then when it tried to open up Firefox at the end of the install, nothing happened. I uninstalled and reinstalled, and the same thing. I double click the icon, and nothing. I hope they still have 1.07 available for download at the website.

EDIT: After uninstalling it, manually removing the firefox directory, and removing the 7 simltaneous versions of the Java runtimes that were apparently installed (the Java runtimes are apparently one of those programs that should be uninstalled before installing the updated version) and reinstalling (and actually closing all open programs like every installation program always asks you to do [though it's rarely necessary]) it works now. I don't know what it was, but whatever. And somehow all my plugins are still there. I wonder where Firefox keeps all the information on those, since it apparently isn't the main Firefox directory.

Yes, this is a sweet feature and completely intuitive. All my extensions (ForecastFox, StumbleUpon, FasterFox) are all working fine.

So far, so good. Viva Firefox!

This would probably be a good time to remind everyone of the link at the bottom of the page here, because I downloaded it from the link in this thread ('cause I forgot).

Especially if you haven't downloaded Firefox before (The W).
