They're coming thick and fast! It's a bug-fix release with an improved default theme and fixes to the extension manager.

I found 0.9 much buggier than 0.8, so I hope this release is better.

Just sucked it, currently can't see a difference. I was wondering all the time why there was not a german release yet, but I think the 0.9.1 explains it.

I'm trying it now, and there seems very little difference, except that when you try to switch themes, you have to close the program and restart before they properly take effect - which is a regression from 0.9. (I'm using the Linux build).

0.9 had bugs with switching themes without restarting. My guess is they implemented this "regression" in order to work more on "restart-less" theme switching.

What does the UA string say now? 0.9 still said 0.8!

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1

My 0.9 didn't register as 0.8 - are you sure you weren't using a release candidate?

I wasn't the only person getting 0.8 - look at message #31:

Did you install 0.9 over 0.8? If so, that results in a lot of odd behavior like this (should be better after 1.0 comes out).
