Changes in Firefox 1.5

I’ve decided to keep track of changes I notice in Firefox 1.5: things that affect me.

1) When a site can’t be accessed, it’s a webpage notice instead a popup alert box (like the new way better)
2) Clicking a link from an IM conversation opens in a new tab instead of the currently active one (neutral: I used to create a new tab in my browser before clicking a link as soon as I’d gotten use to the behavior)
3) Drag tabs (12/4)
4) Drag tabs into the bookmarks toolbar (12/4)

This post will be updated with time.

Also, I’ll throw in an unrelated note here that Symantec Client Security prevents posting comments on WordPress blogs (web privacy issue).

    Help me please…
    I just installed Firefox 2.0, and all of a sudden, my username/password isn't being inserted in the signon window (it always was before). I tried the usual suspects–I did not mistakenly tell FF not to remember the password for this site; and I also tried the remember password bookmarklet, but all to no avail–FF will not ask me to remember this password. What do I need to do to get around this?
