Be fully aware that a large number of plug-ins (themes and extensions) will
break with this upgrade. You need to wait until the release is made official
in the sense that the ;beta barrier' is broken. Only then will developers
modify their plug-ins so that they are fully-compatible with all versions
I attempted to move to version 1.5 twice in the past, but was put off when I
found out it ruined my profile (./mozilla), which I had luckily backed up.
Best of luck with the upgrade,
PS - I installed 1.5 beta 2 on a different SuSE machine yesterday. It works
well if there is are no plug-in involved.
