I find 5.0 32bit as fast as the nightly 7.0 64bit. A good jump in performance over 4.0 as measured with Peacekeeper. So now it is my main browser instead off the nightly 64bit as it has a fully functional flash and supports all the plug-ins I use.

Hi xptowindows7.
Go to https://www.google.com/intl/en/toolbar/ff/install.html and see if it works again.

Hope that helps.

I took the time to benchmark FF4, FF5 and IE9 x86/x64, IE9 still makes better use of video acceleration, while FF still tends to load pages a bit quicker. Overall I still use IE9 x64 as my main browser.

I think anyone expecting FF5 to be a huge upgrade will be disappointed, not to suggest it isn't better, it certainly is, I just think it's a numbers game. Although I did encounter several Flash related bugs, no crashes.

It is very difficult to post sensible comments there.


I suggest that if people are worried about their add-ons changing/failing, they should back up their profiles, BEFORE installing the latest version.

Standard profile location (in W7):
C:\Users\<User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<Profile Name>

Had to go to Mozilla add on, by clicking Tools > Add on
Navigate to C:\users\(Your user name)\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\

See if you have a folder named 3112ca9c-de6d-4884-a869-9855de68056c

Inside find the install.rdf file, change the targetApplication max version value from 4.0.* to 5.0.*

OR

Use the Add-on Compatibility Reporter

Official Firefox 5.0 runs very well. Seems all memory leaks from the Beta have been fixed.

Anyone know when Firefox 6 moves into the Beta stage?

EDIT:

Scratch that, it's July 5th when 6 goes Beta & 7 goes Aurora
