The upgrade on my main rig from 4 to 5 felt a little faster, but for the most part everything was the same.

its great, loving it

but then again, i already knew that long ago, always been using beta's already since firefox 4 was still in beta's.

i personally dont get why its suddenly firefox 5 now. i noticed big difference when i switched over from 3 to 4, but i havent noticed any difference at all between 4 and 5

With every major update comes more incompatible add-ons, disabled add-on compatibility check and all of them work flawlessly :)

So far no problems. I have a couple of broken plugins that nightly dev tools doesn't fix, but beyond that I'm happy with it.
