Hi guys

I use FF5, my question is:

What has FF6 got that FF5 hasn't and is it worth updating for?

Not a lot.And Firefox6 does not recognise some add-ons Under Extentions.

Avast Webrep and Java7 for me.

So maybe wait till they get the problems ironed out.

Thanx for that Butman, I don't use AVAST any more, now that I have 'Microsoft Security Essentials'. But I too do use Java.

The same problems exist with Firefox 6 as 5. Add-on Compatibility Reporter solved my add-on snags. I haven't upgraded to Java 7 yet. Java 6 is fine.

Just updated to version 6 and lost some browser functionality so beware, very frustrating because its's not even a beta version. So stick with 5
