Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh... Okay I lied about waiting for a week or more... The Reviews were too good and after checking the support forums I was convinced I should wait no longer (I was correct)...

I downloaded it and proceeded to install... It's easy as with any Mozilla application... Well one thing I did do before hand and Everyone should is *Export Your Bookmarks* if you are using any versions of Firefox to the location Firefox first brings up and then to a second location just to have a spare copy... I have a Second Hard Drive so the second copy went there...

My only problem with 1.5 after I launched it... There was an Inch and nealry a half bar at the bottom of the Actual Window (Border/Frame) of the application with a little Red " ^ " near the left side... Hmmmmm, I said this can't be right...

Sooooooooooo, now what???... Well of course I hit the Support Forums, nope nothing there similar...What to do, what to do???...

So I decide to unistall it and try again... Nope same thing, Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... Okay, let's try this... I decided to totally Wipe Firefox from my system and start fresh...

So I searched for *Everything Mozilla & Firefox* and deleted it, shut the computer down then started again... YES YES Success!!!... All I had to do is import my Bookmarks and I was back in business..

What was my problem???... Well awhile back I did another install of Windows in a *NEW Folder* because I had quite a few problems with the original install and I didn't want to Reformat or try a Restore or Repair Install because I had to many apps that I didn't want to totally reinstall also... There were *TWO* Application/Data Folders with Mozilla/Firefox Folders in them and 1.5 must have been reading either from both or the wrong one...

Note: I am NOT a Firefox Expert so I can not say that was the actual cause...

My Impressions so far are, I love the *Instant Back/Forward Navigation*, it is a bit faster than 1.0.7 but I'm on a slow computer so I prolly won't see much of a difference until I get something more up to date... Not enough time with Firefox yet to see the rest of what's new but I am very impressed so far...

One thing I think is missing:

1. When Uninstalling, Firefox should ask the user whether they want a *Backup Copy of their Bookmarks/Profile* to be placed on the Hard Disk for a Future Install or whether to *Totally Remove Firefox* from their System... (Good for troubles with a bad install or installer)...

Soooooooooooo, if ya don't have Firefox 1.5 <--go get it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!... From my Travels on the Net... Academic Gamers <--Clicky Link Enjoy
