    Is it possible to avoid history.dat reset on Firefox upgrade? And what about update service – is it working only on trunk or it “should” be working on branch as well? Starting from some beta or RC1 I updated FF manually because there were no updates via update service.

    Looks like I used some test version build that caused me problems with history. Not sure but could be this one http://weblogs.mozillazine.org/ben/archives/009210.html

    maybe it was mentioned or buglisted…but

    whole FF 1.5 branch(1.1+ etc) has some threading bugs or synchro problems or something…
    when FF is loading page in backround, not only CPU goes relatively high but main thread(or tab) is frozen for some miliseconds, so if you beggin interacting with main tab window. or save it, or scrolling(try via 3rd button!) or anything it is really fro-fro-fro-zen-now moves-ze-zen-fro-zen.

    It gets a little worse oppening multiple tabs, but the main problem here is frozening behaviour is very apparent with just one tab in backround loading…

    I have a relatively high machine with relatively enought memmory, so i would expect much worser scenarios on low-end machines, I even heard FF1.07 hadn’t had such problem, sadly I can’t confirm, it has been a very long time I have been on stable branch.

    this behaviour doesn’t seem to change in final, but I would like to know what is casing it.
