    Orginal Dutch:
    Code:
    Firefox 5 staat gepland voor 21 juni
    Na de herhaaldelijke vertragingen van Firefox 4 heeft Mozilla besloten het plannen en testen van nieuwe Firefox-versies anders aan te pakken. Met de nieuwe planning zal Firefox 5 op 21 juni uitkomen en volgt Firefox 6 op 18 augustus. De browsermaker heeft zich laten inspireren door de ontwikkelaars van Google Chrome en gaat een soortgelijk channel-systeem toepassen met automatische updates zonder gebruikersinteractie.
    
    De dagelijkse ontwikkeling van Firefox zal plaatsvinden in de mozilla-central repository en updates worden via het nightly-kanaal verspreid. Elke zes weken wordt de laatste code opgenomen in het aurora-kanaal, waar nieuwe functionaliteit wordt getest en uitgewerkt. Ook dit kanaal kent dagelijkse updates. Na wederom zes weken komt nieuwe functionaliteit die voldoende is afgerond in het bètakanaal, waar met wekelijkse releases de laatste bugs opgelost zullen worden. Na zes weken wordt het bètalabel verwijderd en komt er een nieuwe versie van Firefox uit via het release-kanaal.
    
    Aangezien de vijfde versie van Firefox de eerste zal zijn waarbij de nieuwe planning wordt toegepast zal de doorlooptijd van de cyclussen iets korter zijn. Firefox 5 zal op 12 april drie weken als nightly door het leven zijn gegaan en krijgt dan vijf weken tijd per aurora- en bètakanaal. De update zal Firefox sociale netwerken beter laten ontsluiten en voorzien van een pdf-reader.

    Well I don't know, I disliked firefox 4 so I reinstalled 3. And considering the fact that firefox 5 will have automatic updates I'll probably get another browser instead (or still keep 3).

    Firefox has had automatic updates since.... 2?

    And what do you dislike about Firefox 4? I bet whatever you dislike can be solved with a few clicks int he Options or Customize menu.

    It said "Thunderbird 5" on the English translation... not "Firefox".

    I noticed that too, but it says in the article Firefox and I found other places confirming it. I'm guessing that was a bad typo since the article also talks about Thunderbird 6.

    Well it's more that if I understand the article correctly it will be without user input (I like to know it if they change/update something). As for firefox 4, well with three I'll save my tabs at the end of the day so I can recall the next day. When I updated to four the bastard deleted al those tabs (I did not get the opportunity to save my new tabs either), so unless there is a way around that I'll be sticking to three.

    There's definitely an add-on for such simple tasks. Maybe even already released. But if you want to stay with 3, no problem at all, still a good browser.

    hmm a quick gogle search was all i needed..

    1. Type about:config at the address bar and hit enter.
    2. Click the “I’ll be careful, I promise!” button
    3. At the filter bar, type browser.showQuitWarning and hit enter.
    4. You can either double click on it to change the value from false to true, or right click on it and select Toggle.

    Well I have not tried that (not even searching for a solution), I just decided that three would be better and abandoned it. Who knows, I might just decide to update once more.
