The latest version is a mess. None of the customization will save. I have to drag the search bar back to it every time I restart. It really sucks. Also the fact that I MUST put tabs on top is a show stopper. Give me the old one back. Running 64bit Win7 Ultimate. What a piece of garbage the new &quot;updated&quot; Aurora is.
Firefox 5 Aurora is a step up from Firefox 4 in terms of speed and performance. I am only assuming the reviewer of Firefox Aurora didn't actually use the product and labeled it unstable solely because it's a nightly alpha build. Which doesn't automatically make it worse than the official build. The only downside to Aurora is the fact not many Add-ons are compatible with Aurora yet. And the fact right now no really advanced features show which is typical for an nightly alpha build. Overall if you can handle disabling security checks and don't use download managers such as FlashGet then you should enjoy Firefox 5 Aurora. If FlashGet or Download Accelerator Plus worked with Aurora, I would be using it over Firefox 4. It's by far better overall.
