    If your extensions don't work, try this:

    Find the extension online, right click the install link, click 'Save Link As...'. Save it, then open up the file in some type of archive program(winzip, winrar, etc.). Extract the install.rdf to your desktop, and open it up in notepad. Find the line that looks like this:
    <em:maxVersion>1.6a2</em:maxVersion>

    and change the value in between the xml tags to 1.6a2. After you've done that, save the file, and drag it back into the archive program. Finally, drag the file itself(the xpi file) literally into firefox. It should install automatically.

    Their developers will most likely update them quite quickly.
    So either temporary downgrade or some patience is needed.

    Then your code was not compliant xhtml strict. IE can't handle that. FF can.

    The most popular Internet browser is Internet Explorer and i like opera because it opens pages in backgrounds and with very neat design.

    Firefox has got many features just like opera, firefox is fast have tested no doubt but again opera here.........

    This one seems a bit better than the release candidates, but it still suffers from problems relating to css overflow that none of the older releases, Opera or IE feature. I'm going to have to redo parts of my website to get around the bugs since this is a final release.

    IE doesn't 'feature' anything. What problem are you talking about since I'm not aware of any with css overflow.

    Well, I would highly reccommend the Web Developer extension for starters. Very handy!

    I've been using 1.5 since Deer Park (since September/October?)

    I've had no significant problems of bugs or hindrances through all 1.5 versions.

    Most popular extensions have had a 1.5 patch for them (considering 1.5 development versions have been out since September). Extensions not working have authors that need to stop slacking.

    I use the following extensions for my best web browsing and web development experience, all of which work flawlessly in Firefox 1.5:

    IE Tab (home)
    Open IE-only pages in "embedded IE!" (Even works for Windowsupdate.com!)

    Web Developer (home)
    Adds a menu and a toolbar for various web developer tools.

    Colorzilla (home)
    Advanced Eyedropper, Colorpicker, Page zoomer and other useful goodies.

    Imagebot
    Bulk image uploader! (for imageshack.us; extremely useful!)

    Open Link From Host
    Open the host if a link (adds option in the the right-click context menu)

    Favicon Picker
    Adds UI for replacing bookmark icons (see here for 1.5 compatible version).

    Adblock (w/Filterset.G)
    Filters ads from web-pages (Adblock Plus can restrict by domain).

    SessionSaver
    Automagically restores your last browsing session (and allows you to save tabs as sessions).

    NoScript (home)
    Extra protection for your Firefox: Noscript allows Javascript, Java (and other plugins) only for trusted domains of your choice. Prevents exploitation of security vulnerabilities in the web browser with no loss of functionality.

    Viamatic foXpose (home)
    Click on the icon in the status bar to view all the browser windows with a single click (mimic of Mac's Xpose).

    I also use the awesome iFox theme for Firefox, which is very minimalistic and modern.

    Long live Firefox!

    It's also interesting to see the new Mozilla.com site showcasing Firefox.

    Nice, thanks for the foXpose link! Very awesome, though a little slow when you've got a lot of tabs--but definitely helps distinguish multiple tabs of the same site.

    The only major extension that breaks that I use regularly is "Inspect Element" , which is invaluable when you're trying to troubleshoot javascript-heavy pages. I can live without it, but it's annoying.

    I'm not sure if it was already present in 1.0.X version:

    Animated GIF (OK, the situation is funny, but that's not what I post it for)

    Not only does it show as animated favicon in the url field, but also as the tab favicon

    I wasn't replying to your question, but to answer you:

    1. Web Developer
    2. Colorzilla
    3. IE Tab

    Colorzilla is especially useful, though it may not seem. Saves me time taking a screenshot and porting the image into Photoshop just to use eyedropper.

    I agree that is annoying. I managed to get Inspect Element working on my copy of 1.5 though by editing the maxversion parameter in its install.rdf file.

    Question

    I've got 1.5 and I have a question. On the bottom past where I've got my noscript and weathernetwork icons (on the bottom part of firefox) I have something that looks like a part of the browser but I don't know what it is. Here's a screenshot, what is it and how the heck do I get rid of it? Usually I'm one for tinkering with new tech, but I'm tired and its my day of so I'm going back to bed. Thanks guys for your help. I appreciate it!

    Two things bug me about this update

    1: CTRL+F works, but it doesn't work when you press it again to make Search Box go away.

    2. The Design is all flat and liney looking, looks like I need a regular windows theme

    Use F3 it works just fine.

    That's why there are something like 130 different skins to choose from via Tools ==> Themes ==> Get more themes.

    You can also do like I'm doing and create your own theme by merging other themes together. In my case, since the old "Qute" theme has been abandoned by its developer, I've been resurecting it by merging some of its graphics with the Firefox Classic (default) theme and modifying style sheets to waste less white (er grey) space.
