    Upgrade Firefox to 1.5.0.4 (Firefox)

    Is there any reason to NOT upgrade to Firefox 1.5? I am currently running 1.07 without any troubles but am reading that there are security issues and should upgrade.

    There are some changes that have annoyed people, but I don't think they justify sticking with 1.0.x. The one that comes to mind relates to the radically improved forward/back speed, which seems to use much more RAM because many more pages are cached in their "fully rendered" form. Also, of course, some themes and extensions have not been updated to work with 1.5.x. Unless you have a unique one that you can't live without, there is likely to be a compatible one available from somebody.
