Thanks to crislosi and grissino for the porting of firefox 3.5.x to the new series:
MIB customizations and patches and fixes: by grissino
Build for 2009.1: 64bit arch. by nicco, 32bit arch. by crislosi
Build for 2009.0: 32bit arch. (*) by grissino

(*) 2009.0 has been ported for a special request of mrclick (GianLuca Bonanno)
I remember that MIB actually supports only 2008.1 and 2009.1, no more 2009.0...
But for a good friend sometimes we can make some rare exceptions, but now:
Gianluca, our best photographer, owes me and grissino some beer! - We are thirsty...
