After install, this is msg I saw it display:

"This page confirms that you’re running the latest version of Firefox, with the latest updates for stability and security. It won’t be displayed again."

Regarding 1.5.0.1, what are people doing for spell checking? SpellBound, which I was using, is not compatible with the latest version.

Ouch... looks like Spellbound hasn't been updated in months, and nothing else works nearly as well. Time to write the author, I guess!

I hope he has not given it up.

Hard to tell. Doesn't look like there's been any development since last summer...

That's what I see also. Doesn't look good.

Hope he's not one of the folks who got miffed when Mozilla went "commercial"...

1.5.0.1 is the "patched" version. It seems that Mozilla gets these patches out faster than a certain Washington state company. <g>
