What's new in Firefox 1.5 (comprehensive)

This page lists the improvements in Firefox 1.5 over the previous stable release of Firefox, 1.0.7. Last updated November 30, 2005.

This page is based on my changelogs for the individual releases leading up to Firefox 1.5 (a1, a2, b1, b2, rc1, rc2, rc3). It has about the same level of detail. Because it has that much detail, it's a bit long (even though it still only mentions a small percentage of all bugs that were fixed!). I've tried to group related bugs and put the most important items at the top to make it easier to skim this list. I've also tried to omit things that aren't relevant to users upgrading from Firefox 1.0.7, such as bugfixes for features that didn't even exist in Firefox 1.0.7.
