About the version numbers, well does it really matter how Mozilla increments their new versions?
Personally I think they should of called it FF 2011-1a or something like that..
well.. i'm no S/W engineer, but, normally, FF has gone through normal Versions
of itself and s/w
versions are numbered incrementally to denote small updates i.e. 3.2, 3.3, 3.5 and (someone can correct me if I'm wrong) that when you jump whole
versions from like 5.0 => 6.0 means it's a COMPLETE new version .. which 'might' mean the entire structure or root system was changed..
it may not be a problem, just means it's kinda out of the 'norm' for s/w developers to bring in full versions, unless the last version was actually
bad enough to make the jump.....
which, I thought 5.0 was just fine .. FF updated itself and found 3 addons/updates which could not find better updates which were ironically
..grrr..the most important IMO.. just seemed reeeeealy odd .. looking back at the history ..
JAVA & MS Network blah blah blah ..(can't remember what the heck it was )
