    My question, they made such a hoo-har about FF4 and then superceeded it with 5 within a couple of months! wtf?

    I found it weird as well.

    Looks to me like they might have found some issues in 4 and hence why 5 has been a fast release after it. But then you could argue, why not release a higher version of 4?

    So it is odd.

    I can't say I can see any difference although subjectively, it seems a little quicker.

    Wow! I imagine it will create some fuss with add-ons

    It works, I can't say it's any better or worse than FF4.

    You know, after I upgraded, I thought something went wrong it looks so similar.

    I haven't installed it yet. Thought I'd wait and see what others thought first.

    Which add-on is it?

    oo Fireshot is now working again. It didn't work a few days ago.

    It was fireshot.. and Fireshot is not working for me, it seems to go insane when I click the "copy to clipboard" icon

    hmm Fireshot really is working for me today. When I click copy clipboard icon my firefox seems to jump around a bit, but I am able to paste the picture into photoshop no problem
