It was posted there yesterday when I checked.  However, the official release date is still June 21st.


I hope you can read  :-*  ::)

Three days earlier than originally planned, the Mozilla Foundation has released version 5 of the popular Internet browser Firefox. In comparison to the previous version, the changes keep within limits.

^^

What official Mozilla site are you quoting that from?   Post the official URL and I will believe it then.  Until Mozilla says it's officially released, then it isn't officially released.  What part of that don't you understand? ;D ::)

Of course, posting the URL on or after June 21st doesn't count. :-* >:(

If it's an official release I couldn't find it. PC Magazine had a write-up, but that's all I was able to find.

Read Polinus comment on the link below as to why WebRep was not compatible with Firefox Beta releases

If you are on the "Beta Track" you can download the update to 5.0 RC via About Firefox.

5.0 RTW is not yet available.  It is still scheduled for release next Tuesday the 21st.

Hi, Nesivos

My installed Firefox is the final version 5, which has just been released.

I think it may be appropriate to have avast! WebRep fixed in due course.

Regards,
A. Chung

it not the final version of firefox 5 is a candidate released that was released a few days ago.

Nothing has changed, essentially it is a game of catch-up for many firefox add-ons when a new version is released.

- The fact that you don't see the WebRep or doesn't work with the latest firefox version, doesn't lessen the avast protection. You still have the Network Shield blocking known malicious sites and the Web Shield pre-scanning http content before it is displayed/run in your browser.

The WebRep is purely reputation based on avast user input. Later when the avast! virus labs start inputting information of detected malware, etc. into the webrep database, then it will be more of a security feature than just a reputational tool.
