Firefox 11 is out, users can now sync add-ons across computers


Mozilla is chugging away at them Firefox updates, officially releasing Firefox 11 today. Most of the changes, once again [2], deal with back-end and developer issues rather than end-user facing features. The most significant change for the end-user is the ability to sync add-ons across multiple computers for anyone that uses Firefox Sync. Other than that, HTML5 video controls have been redesigned, you can now import bookmarks, history, and cookies from Google Chrome, and a bug with Growl 1.3 notifications has been fixed. The rest of the changes are nothing that will be of interest to the average user:

Firefox 11 will be rolling out to users through Firefox’s auto-update starting in a few days; anyone that is impatient and wants to upgrade now can grab it from Mozilla’s FTP repository (link below). If after upgrading to Firefox 11 you find your add-ons have been disabled, feel free to give Add-On Compatibility Reporter [3] a try to show Firefox who is boss.

Update: For some reason Firefox 11 has been pulled from the official FTP repository. You can still grab it from MajorGeeks [5], however.
