I had 5.0 installed a check of Help About Firefox showed it as up to date. Checking FileHippo.com showed 5.0.1, How come no indication of this in Help About Firefox?

Thanks

It is because Firefox 5.0 is still the current update for Windows and Linux users as the 5.0.1 was really only for to have a couple work around's for Mac OSX users as in a font issue for OSX 10.7 that may crash Firefox and a Java plugin loading issue on OSX 10.5. (They say OSX 10.6 but really meant OSX 10.5)

FileHippo was not aware it was only really for MAC OSX.
