Firefox 1.5 and the Greasemonkey Extension

Mozilla Firefox 1.5 was released yesterday and if you are a heavy user of browser extensions you may notice that after upgrading, several of your extensions may no longer be working. For me, 3 of my 15 extensions have not yet been updated to work with Firefox 1.5.
Right off the bat you should run a search for updates to see if Firefox can find updates on it's own through the new and improved update system (Tools - Extensions - Find Updates). If no updates are available there, try the extension's home page (Right click on your extension and select Visit Home Page), and if that doesn't work, try Google, or check and see if there is another extension that does the same task.
I have been using the Firefox 1.5 release candidates for several weeks now, and I have been extremely bummed that one of my favorite and most used extensions, Greasemonkey, was not compatible with Firefox 1.5. If you go to the Greasemonkey blog however you can get beta version that is supposed to work, but it doesn't (in fact, it even caused problems with Firefox's normal functionality and I thought was in error in the core browser). So I have had to run Firefox for several weeks with Greasemonkey disabled.
Then with yesterday's official 1.5 release, I decided to search more for a version of Greasemonkey that works. And low and behold, barried within the 230+ user comments on the latest blog entry is a link to an un-official version of Greasemonkey that really is Firefox 1.5 compatible. According to the comments, this un-official version will become official down the line. (Note: Comment permalink isn't work, run a Find on the page for "20:24")
Here is the direct link to install the XPI:
Hopefully this help anyone else that finds themselves in the same situation as I did. Now back to using my wonderful collection of Greasemonkey user scripts. . .

UPDATE 2005-12-01 After all my troubles of finding the hidden 0.6.3 version, Greasemonkey 0.6.4 has been officially released via the main channels. Get it via Firefox's built-in Extension updater or from the Greasemonkey Blog.

That's a bummer. You'll have to post an update when Greasemonkey works with 5.1. Until then I doubt I'll be updating to v. 5.1.

Nathan, you appearantly didn't read my entry thouroughly - as version 0.6.3 *IS* compatible with Firefox 1.5.

However, now you can just get 0.6.4 though the update system.
