Duh! No kidding. That's why it's a RELEASE CANDIDATE. It's for developers, not end users.

That's not Mozilla's problem. If you have extensions that don't work then write to the author and ask them to update their extensions.

> Even if FX2 is "a great release" not many people will care.

You are correct that they won't care. The auto update will update them to FF2 without them having to do anything. They'll keep on surfing and not worry about anything.
