I'm not really that impressed. After install I lost about 10 extensions, of which three were quite important to me. I guess that's the fault of the extension programmers, but Firefox really ought to be backwards compatible with XUL, I think. What's worse is that the development team still hasn't fixed the search plugins. Updating to 1.5 I once again lost the 8 engines I had added, and had crap like Creative Commons put in there instead. It was a stated objective that 1.5 would move plugins to the user profile, thus ensuring that upgrading wouldn't mess with your settings, but apparently this hasn't happened.
Yeah it's kinda weird it's not backward compitable. All of my extensions except one though had an update for them. However, a couple of them still don't work properly, like the BBCode one

There are no *huge* differences, but some small nice ones, such as that you can now move around your tabs, how stupid it might sound I have really missed it (I still wish firefox could work more like opera though when the most recent tabs are on top, not like in firefox where the one to the right is on top). Also it feels like it's faster, which is nice. And yeah support for new standards etc etc, nothing you really notice though.
Anyhow, considering the time it took to release it I donno if it was a good realase or not, but yeah well having seen IE7 after 4.5 years of development I guess it's still happening things in Firefox...
