Thanks for the update. It being posted in the release folder seems not proof of it being a release any more. With 5.0 Beta 1 installed it only updates if set to get updates from the Aurora update channel :(

Just couple of days ago Mozilla announced that they will be releasing "1st" beta of Firefox in a week. What we thought as 1st beta was actually Aurora. Very confusing indeed.

First Rapid Release Firefox Beta Now Available

Mozilla is pleased to release a new Firefox Beta for download and testing.

Mozilla recently introduced the Firefox Aurora development channel to support more frequent releases. The shift to a rapid release development cycle delivers cutting edge Firefox features, performance enhancements, security updates and stability improvements to users faster.

After five weeks of testing on the Firefox Aurora channel, the next version of Firefox is ready for the beta channel. This release includes the Firefox channel switcher, performance and stability enhancements and support for the new CSS Animations standard to allow developers build more amazing Web experiences. The new Firefox channel switcher lets users move between Firefox Aurora, Beta and Release channels to test features at various levels of development, quality and polish.

Thanks to Firefox Beta testers for being a crucial part of refining and preparing the next version of Firefox for more than 400 million users worldwide.
