I just tried Firefox 1.5 and was very disappointed to find that all but two of my installed extensions were compatible. Since I heavily use those extensions, this was not an acceptable situation.
So I uninstalled Firefox 1.5. It didn’t rollback to 1.0.7, it just completely removed all of firefox, there weren’t even any icons in the Start MRU. I knew the risks of my gung-ho approach, but still I felt a cold chill down my spine. What if I have recklessly removed all of my bookmarks, settings and saved passwords? It would be worse than losing a limb. Well, not an arm.
I loaded up Firefox’s poor cousin, Maxthon, and went to getfirefox. I downloaded 1.0.7 and installed it. On the first load, an error dialog appeared that gave me a list of the incompatible extensions that i had installed. The list was empty. Did that mean that all my extensions were compatible, or that I have no extensions. There was a button for checking, which surely wouldn’t be there if it had already checked. Fear. Disk activity. My Firefox is back. Yay!
