    Discovered that when I closed FF 1.5, several firefox.exe's were still open. This prevented CCleaner from doing it's thing. Had to do Control-Alt-Del, and close all the other open firefox.exe's. Allegedly this happens because of antivirus programs or anything that monitors disk activity.

    Didn't have this problem with 1.07. 1.5 didn't seem that much faster to overcome this glitch for me.

    When I updated to the newest version of FF, I ran into a couple of problems. The browser wouldn’t even launch. I uninstalled and reinstalled and I still had the same problem. I had to uninstall and then go deep inside of the OS to remove a lot of old FF stuff and then reinstall FF. I also had to update some themes and extensions. I lost all of saved passwords. I am still running 1.07 on my other PCs. I’ll upgrade them when/if I am bored one day.

    Only gripe is some of my extentions don't work. I sure do miss mouse gestures.

    and I do think it is a bit faster. For some reason my DL's seem to be going at a faster rate. So, so far so good.
