    First Look - FF2 RC1 (FF2 RC1)

    Downloaded and installed FF2 RC1 yesterday. Like the 'look'. It did, however, 'unexpectedly terminate' (crash) 3 times in a single day. Can't remember the last time 1.5 crashed on me.

    Not sure yet if I like the new way of closing tabs (with the 'X' on the tab).

    I'm really ticked-off they removed the 'Read Mail and News' button from the Navigation toolbar. I expect new versions of a product to add functionality, not remove it.

    I don't think RC1 is quite ready for prime-time. It's back to 1.5.0.7 for me until RC2 shows up.

    The crash is probably due to a known bug in RC1 that has already been fixed in the latest nightly builds.

    If you want the mail buttons back you can use the Get Mail extension. Personally I do not miss them since I never used them.

    Tony,

    Thanks for pointing me to the 'Mail' extension. I wasn't aware of it. I still think I'll wait for RC2 (or even gold) to let them work out the bugs.

    Cheers,
    Regards,
