Adblock Plus in Firefox Beta 5.

If you guys would have noticed, Ad block plus doesn’t work in Firefox beta 5, even on setting extensions.checkCompatibility = false.

Neither searching for updates helps. So guys, just head over to Adblock Plus development builds here.

Pick up the latest development version for adblock plus. Like for me adblockplus-0.7.5.3+.2008040612.xpi works perfect.

And yeah! Firefox3b5 rocks, upgrade now.

Happy ads blocking.

Firefox beta 4, Upgrade now + run all your incompatible extensions : extensions.checkCompatibility = false

Firefox 3 beta 4 was just released. I have been upgrading without waits and have been running the greatest firefox all the time. When I advised a friend, he said he does not upgrade since his extensions doesn’t work. I was like come on!! You don’t know, Extensions.checkCompatibility ?

So friends, don’t stop yourself any further, Install the latest wonderful thing here. Again, here’s are the release notes to find how much greater it became. And here’s the detailed performance review.

Firefox 3 Beta 4 includes more than 900 enhancements from the previous beta, including drastic improvements to performance and memory usage, as well as fixes for stability, platform enhancements and user interface improvements. Many of these improvements were based on community feedback from the previous beta.

And for those who had been laying back for extensions that doesn’t work, quickly browse to about:config and create a new boolean value -> extensions.checkCompatibility and set it to false.

Most of my extensions work without breaking anything.
