Firefox 3.5 (final) has been released. The main download page isn't up yet, but should be later on today.

If you already have Firefox 3.5-rc3, there's no need to install this since it's the same build.

Ive just downloaded it via the update function in FF.
Seems ok so far. Hopefully it will be a bit quicker than the last few versions.

LOL, yes it is. When i opened FF this morning i was alerted about the update and i downloaded it.
I cant prove it though but i bet im not the first one.
Other than a screen shot how can i prove it to you?

EDIT: I was using 3.5 RC3 (i think it was 3) so maybe this does link to the 3.5 release rather than if i had used 3.0.11

It's kind'a weird..... I just downloaded FF 3.5 from "File Hippo" and it installs as 3.5, not RCx or any special designation.
But on the opening screen I get this......

Thank you for helping test this new version of the Firefox 3.5 Release Candidate! This release is being made available for testing purposes only. You should read the release notes before getting started.
We want to hear all of your thoughts about this release candidate, especially if you encounter broken sites or other web weirdness. Drag this feedback button onto your bookmarks toolbar and click on it when you have something to tell us. We'll be waiting to hear from you! (Or, if you'd prefer, you can file a bug.)
Did someone just forget to remove this opening screen?

Maybe I'm just not as observant as I once was, but I really see no difference between 3.0.11 and the newer 3.5. What am I missing?

The final version is up on firefox.

Also, 3.5 is faster than 3.0.11, just run some benchmark tests and you'll see the difference.

However, I am not using 3.5, instead I use 3.6a1pre, which is faster than 3.5 and pretty stable.

Run benchmark tests also and performance has improved. If you are inept and can't find it here's a link.

ff 3.5?

First off. Great news. Does anyone know if mozback up is up to speed backing up profile for 3.01 then importing for FF 3.5, I cannot glean this from moz's site? Also can you update in place from 3?
