It seems they have totally crippled the preferences in this release, removing a lot of very useful things for no apparent reason. Apart from the cookie option to accept cookies only from the original domain I cannot find the options for whether or not to show the download dialog or where to download files to. What can the motivation for such an idiotic removal be? I have just thrown away RC1 and reinstalled 1.5 -- I am not in the mood to configure my browser by hacking about:config all the time.
