So no Tab animation after all in Mozilla Firefox 6.... :no: :no:

Why is such a deal breaker, if I may ask?

AutoFill is supposed to just help finish URL fragments (e.g. neo-->neowin). Audioboxer's version doesn't look like I've heard it described - could be some conflict?

Yes its a conflict with the Omnibar addon.I had to disable the addon,because what ever url i type(even full url)it always makes google search with the whole urlbar text.Waiting for and update for Omnibar.

Not likely till it lands on trunk...Aurora is not the place to land new stuff, only back out, turn off broken 'stuff', or security patches.

Argh, another version bump, another boolean to be added to re-enable extensions.

Has anyone done it yet for the Nightly 7.0a1? I tried adding extensions.checkCompatibility.7.0a1 but it didn't re-enable them. Booleans for extensions.checkCompatibility.7.0 extensions.checkCompatibility.7.0a and extensions.checkCompatibility.7.0b were also there but I didn't add them :unsure: Has anyone managed to disable extension compatibility checking yet?

If your on nighly builds in about:config add the new hidden-pref:

extensions.checkCompatibility.nightly add as a boolean entry and set it to 'false' restart browser. Now as long as your on nightly builds you won't have to worry about bumps ever again...

NOTE: This does not preclude that addons still may break, or even break the browser.

Thank you for the new extension compatibility Boolean for nightly!

I hope Flow for Firefox gets updated to work properly, something seems to have broken it and it barely works now. also Stratiform is a little broken too but I am aware a new version is in the works anyway :)

Is it just me, or was there no update for Aurora today? Anyone know why?

If things go according to plan, updates should be available in a couple of hours (noon, PDT). I wonder what Aurora users will need to do to force add-on compatibility.

Right now, I have this in about:config ...

extensions.checkCompatibility.5.0a;false

In these FF5 betas, should we have the ability to change update channels? I've tried changing from FF5 beta 3 to Aurora, but nothing happens. When changing from Aurora to another channel it works fine.

As mentioned here or somewhere else, the channel switcher is going to be trashed.

Aurora is quite decent and you just download it afresh (https://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/channel/). It will install over the beta and use your existing settings.

For add-ons, you could use the ACR or create:

extensions.checkCompatibility.6.0a;false

in about:config

7.0a1 performance in v8, sunspider and kraken is lower compared to the 6.0a1 builds. Anyone else notice this?

Yes I have noticed it. As a matter of fact on several sites I have noticed the Aurora to be noticeably faster rendering the pages than the latest Nightly
