I read that they had a significant bug in the 64-bit builder process, which was fixed yesterday.
Hopefully a new version will be out in a few days.

More info on Firefox 5

Here is an update re Firefox 5 and upwards for fans:-

"Mozilla has further detailed its new development model for Firefox. The current draft says Firefox 5 will arrive on June 21, 2011 and Firefox 6 will be released on August 18, 2011. These dates may change, but they're what the company is currently aiming for. All changes to Firefox source code are initially integrated in the mozilla-central Mercurial repository. At scheduled intervals (typically 6 weeks), the changes are imported from mozilla-central to one of three other channels (larger features and projects are usually initially developed in other repositories which track mozilla-central). In addition to mozilla-central (currently referred to as nightly), there will also be firefox-experimental, firefox-beta, and Firefox (release), each backed by its own Mercurial repository. These names are currently placeholders and Mozilla may still change them."

Well at least they're not doing the extreme opposite, which is what Linux Kernel devs do. 2.6.35.7, anyone? 2.6 is nearly 8 years old now I think.

Linux is ...

The Linux guys would say that's because it's perfect and doesn't need any changes, improvements or patches.

I've had 5 or 6 sets of updates for Ubuntu 10.04 in the past week.
Two of them were for single lib files though.

yeah it does feel a bit superficial - but they'll do what they do

And concerning Linux- move on from LL and get MM!

not that there is much of a difference as well

That's because the changes in the kernel aren't of massive significance. Just small feature adds, bug fixes and security updates.

The distros themselves, which are what comprise a full usable Linux system do undergo number changes. But major number changes usually take at least 1 year, and usually 2 or 3.

With naming conventions like that, I guess that the next release will be called Nervous Nelly.

Firefox crashes everytime I try to launch it.
It had too many tabs and it keeps crashing every time I try to launch it. Maybe there is a bug? I created another account and it works there well but I want it to work well on this account too. Turning the computer on and off didn't work.
