IF YOU ARE RUNNING MACOS X 10.1.5 MAKE SURE YOU BACKUP YOUR BOOKMARKS IF YOU WANT TO RUN MOZILLA 1.5. You may not loose your bookmarks the first time you use Mozilla 1.5 but you will eventually loose the bookmarks the longer you use Mozilla 1.5. Sometimes, but not always, when Mozillla 1.5 is quit the bookmarks will be erased from your profile. This is the bug:

"Dataloss:Bookmarks will sometimes (but not always) disappear when Mozilla is launched." <>

Why is this very serious issue of the loss of the bookmarks if you are on MacOS X 10.1.5 not mentioned on the release notes for Moz 1.5? This is a serous dataloss bug and users should be warned before they loose their bookmarks!

Could someone please update the release notes to include mention of bug 221037 for MacOS X 10.1.5 users? Thanks.
