There is no Firefox 1.8. Are you talking about a gecko version or something? It tells you which extensions will not work when you update. It is up to you to decide if you want to upgrade. Java Console is a hidden Java 6 extension that autoinstalls when you install Java 6 - dont blame us, blame Sun. It is an unnecessary extension.

P.S. If you choose to keep Firefox 1.5, know that it will no longer get security updates, so over time, it will be come less secure due to this.
