Slashdot:: FireFox 1.0 released

While I'm excited that the release version of FF is out, I think the FireFox org kinda screwed this one up.

I've only just installed the newest version, and I'm hoping for good things.

However, 1.0 broke almost all of the extensions that I have installed. Now, I expected at leat some of that, but not nearly as much as I got (literally, 14 out of 17 don't load). I'm also aware that this is mostly a problem for the extension developers. Where I think FF messed up was not segregating that extensions site from the site that's managing the 1.0 downloads. Since they know that many of the extensions wouldn't work OOTB, they could have at least made it easier to fix that problem.

The main (only?!?) reason that I use FF instead of another non-IE browser is the extensions. The browser is much less useful to me without them.

Also, seems like this page doesn't display well in the new version - I wonder what's broked?

grrrrr.

Sorry that your extensions broke. Try my extension while you're at it. It's called "LookAhead" and can be found here:

And the install for 1.0 can be found here:

Thanks for the tip - looked at that extension, but it didn't interest me much. And I've made some real progress on my other probs - about to post an entry about that....
