Firefox 5 Released

The Mozilla Foundation has just released Firefox 5, the next iteration of their popular browser. It would be good idea for ITS folks to download it and see if they find any problems accessing any major systems such as Blackboard and eDocs so we can be proactive in keeping the campus community updated of any issues they might encounter should they choose to use it. I’ve briefly tried it with eDocs and haven’t yet found any problems.

This new version can be found here:

    I found that on Windows, the install of Firefox 5 does not remove or overwrite Firefox 4. This is OK, but can quickly become confusing because the desktop icons are exactly the same. I ended up uninstalling Firefox 4 to eliminate this problem. YMMV.
