Downloaded "Nightly" and didn't notice any changes, although the size of the program is 2MB larger than Firefox 4 meaning there must be some change.

It could be larger just by the fact that it is an x64 program though I am not positive about this.

I also downloaded it but I could not get it to run though it did install.

I messed with my AV program including its web shields and Firewall but had no luck. I didn't mess with the Windows Firewall which I won't do.

I have no problems with other programs running.

So I uninstalled it.

I may try it again in a couple of weeks as installing and uninstalling it did not appear to cause any problems with the rest of the stuff on the computer.

Looking forward to use FF Version 5

It will be nice to see a new version as I am not satisfied with version 4 as it does not work properly for me. So I am using their test version calls Nightly, tis seems to be much faster and more stable.

Mainly bug fixes right now, but the first thing I instantly noticed when trying out 'Nightly' a few weeks back was that they'd updated the browser chrome & made it look more smoother compared to Firefox 4.0 which looks jaggy in places & has shadows under the buttons, there's some other minimal UI changes as well in the Add-ons area.

Nope, it's in the Aurora channel, will be released as Stable sometime in June I think.

Nightly (6.0a1) > Aurora (5.0a2) > Beta (?) > Stable (4.0)

jut to point out, 'Nightly' is the build every night, so that people who want to be can be on the 'bleeding edge' of up-to-date-ness with FireFox. Clearly, this does mean some of the nightly builds are unstable.
