    I updated to RC2 manually, because my check for updates button didn't work, and it still doesn't work It's greyed out for some reason

    Might be because the firefox directory in /opt belongs to root and firefox is running as a user. The updater needs write access to the /opt/firefox directory, so I chowned /opt/firefox to me (sudo chown -R owenwen /opt/firefox) and it works fine.

    RC2 hangs my machine after a few pages. You can move the mouse, the keyboard doesn't work so you cannot get to a terminal, close X anything. A complete lockup. This was installed as per this thread.

    Nothing has ever hung my two installs of Ubuntu previously. The only fix is a power recycle.

    I had a lock with it too. Not that bad, just kicked me out to the Feedback tool, but it was the first lockup I'd seen with Firefox since 0.5 days.

    actually installed the ubuntu 1.0.7 back on and then went to RC2 - I have not had any problems at all, on the other hand I have been brutal again and deleted all profiles etc

    I lost a bunch of settings and all my bookmarks doing a Check For Updates over to 1.5RC2 -- I think the updater may have still been broken in RC1 -- it worked fine on Windows though!

    Re: HOWTO: Install Firefox 1.5 from mozilla.org

    Anyone know how to get the SessionSaver extension working with FF 1.5 RC1? I think I've found a version that works:

    http://adblock.ethereal.net/alchemy.cgi/SessionSaver

    But the 'install' button doesn't work on my system and I don't know how to install the .jar file after downloading!

    Any help, greatly appreciated!!!

    Try adding the http://adblock.ethereal.net page to the "Allow this site to install software" -list.

    Does anyone know how to adblock images without using the adblock extension? I've been hearing stories that it would be possible. If I remember correctly, bored2k was telling something about it.
