Lucid-Firefox 3.6x to FF 5-Use, config and security notes.
Since it is obvious that in a few months we Lucid users will be forced into Firefox 5 or 6 or whatever it is then, I am asking those already migrated for assistance.
I had tested FF4 a while back and found it tolerable, but with no benefit to me at the time. I was concerned with the "Services sync" addition as a potential security issue for poorly configured clients. But, since FF4 beta, what other issues have appeared that could impact users?
IT people seem to be in a panic over this for their deployments, the "Rapid Release" issue, but since it's a fact, what needs to be done, changed, added or "about:config"d to False for maximum performance, security and stability?
In otherwords, how to get any unessential dogs, ponies, bells and whistles disabled or removed, as would be required in a typical corporate environment - just as an Internet Browser, nothing more
