Windows 7: Firefox 4.0 beta 5 released

07 Sep 2010   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I've been on Beta 5 since the first candidate last week, and it is definitely more stable than Beta 4. No crashes thus far.

Windows 10 Pro x64

Updated and have problem.
It shows custom value and a 404 page instead of my home page.
Have tried a workaround it sort of works but is a PITA

EDIT; I posted this then closed and reopened Fire fox and it worked OK,

Windows 7 (32-Bits)

I just upgraded to Beta 5. Make sure you first uninstall Beta 4 and then install Beta 5. Otherwise, add-ons get all mixed up. Greasemonkey will not work in Beta 5 although it worked in Beta 4. The workaround is to turn the scripts you want into add-ons.

Beta 5 seems to be faster than Beta 4. The new Firefox menu looks a bit different. Although you need sometime to get used to it, it gets easier

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

I've just now got it on. Some of the stuff about hardware acceleration and the audio visual stuff looks interesting but I haven't used it yet really. I noticed I could only import bookmarks from Opera, tried that but I can't find them so I must have misunderstood it.
Be nice to import bookmarks from Chrome and my FF 3.8 install but I haven't seen a way to do that yet either. It's late here, I'll have a proper look round tomorrow
