Now after the 2.0 Beta and RC 2.0 were released, though I downloaded it I did not install it! I was kinda waiting-in-the-wings so as to see what the enhancements would be and how it would scale up to all the extensions and themes of 1.5! I, for one, have a lot of really useful extensions on my 1.5.0.7. I would really be upset if they (or most of them!) become defunct with 2.0 👿 Not every extension is upwardly scalable….I still remember I lost the really nice extension – Abstract Mouse.com’s Shared Bookmarks – when I’d upgraded to 1.5. So the upgrade to 2.0 final version will also have to wait for a few days!

UPDATE: Uninstall Firefox 1.5.0.7 Before Installing Firefox 2.0!
If you have Firefox 1.5.0.7 installed and want to upgrade to Firefox 2.0, uninstall Firefox 1.5.0.7 first. We’ve had a few reports of users having bookmarks go missing after upgrading !
