    I have been an avid supporter of FireFox...but 1.5 should of never been released until all the bugs were ironed out,there are to many issues happening with it(read there forums before you install it)..I tried to reinstall 1.07 but then I had problems with that,so to avoid any more conflicts I uninstalled FireFox and switched to Maxthon(I wanted the tab browsing)...I just don"t have the patience or time to try and make something work that has been tested and approved...Maxthon is not as secure as FireFox but at least it functions as it should.

    UPDATE 12-01-05
    Well it bugged the hell out of me what the problem was...it seems some extensions cause a conflict with 1.5...I went into Firefox safe mode...this is NOT windows safe mode..to get to firefox safe mode you type the following into the "run" screen..C:\Program Files\Mozilla\Firefox SafeMode ...Firefox will then open as it was first installed...check the appropriate boxes (pic below) or continue in safe mode and delete your extensions one at a time untill you find the one causing the problem...in my case it was "Java Script"..all is back to normal now and it seems to be working fine.

    The Firefox Bug:
    Turns out that the vulnerability code released Thursday isn't nearly as critical as initially made out, but Mozilla will have a patch available early in the new year anyway according to PC World It will just basically crash the browser if you visit a site coded to exploit the vulnerability.

    Security research company Secunia Thursday gave the bug a rating of "not critical" in a report on its Web site. Schroepfer said it would be extremely rare for someone to visit a site that exploits the hole during a typical Web-browsing session. "You'd have to browse to a malicious site, one that someone spent the time to create to cause people harm," he said. "Then you'd have to browse there, and the next time your browser would take longer to start." Even if a user does encounter a malicious Web site that exploits the hole, clearing out the browser's history will remedy the problem.

    I'v been having some problems with firefox crashing reccently.

    I exported my bookmarks, uninstalled firefox, deleted c:\program files\mozilla firefox, deleted C:\Documents and Settings\the_windows_username_im_using\Application Data\Mozilla, rebooted and reinstalled firefox 1.5

    It hasn't crashed again, yet. I suspect there is some incompatibility between the files created by 1.0.x and 1.5

    This resulted in the firefox not having a load of usernames and passwords stored anymore.
