Firefox 2.0: More Than Just a Surfboard - page 4
Productivity Tools In Firefox 2.0
Some extensions don't work with version 2.0, so you may have to wait a little while before the convenience comes back.
For example, the Fasterfox 1.0.3 extension showed up in the Incompatible Add-ons box, when I first started version 2.0. No updates were available, so I just clicked through the two or three OK buttons to get to the main Firefox screen.
For all I know there may be been some Firefox code cleaned up that makes Fasterfox obsolete.
Version 2.0 doesn't appear that different from the old 1.5.x program. As we've seen, there are some time saving features that you'll probably want to investigate.
The Firefox Web pages have a lot more information on the other new features in version 2.0. I've only hit a few that I thought were particularly useful.
According to the site, improvements have been made in security, Web feeds, search options, and bug fixes.
Now that the developers have gotten through this release, they're on to version 3.0. I'm certainly looking forward to that.
