  • It’s already available on Mozilla’s FTP.

  • Keith, hopefully this FF 3.5.1 version is free from any crash, as I had already very tired with the crash problem that happened on me, when I’m using the FF3.5 version!

  • Keith – Just thought I’d let you know that Gears version shows to be not compatible (again) once you’ve upgraded to 3.5.1 however…

    Gears actually does work if you use the Nightly Tester Tools extension to override compatibility. This wasn’t the case where past versions of Gears were found to be incompatible with new versions of Firefox which is why I’m mentioning it here. You can also re-enable Gears functionality by setting “extensions.checkCompatibility” to “False” in “about:config” although that’s never the best choice. Just remember to set it back to “True” once Google gets their Gears updated…again.

    Just letting folks know. ;)

    • @Kirk thanks for bringing this to attention, will take a look at it
