What is so different about it?

Other than bug fixes, I don't know. It seems like it should have been called FF 4.2. That way when they said they would no longer support 4.1 anymore it would have been obvious. Appeartly, calling it v5 causes problems for companies because it signals that they need to retest their apps to ensure they still work correctly. That's because 5.0 indicates there are new fetures. Calling it 4.2 would have implied the current feature set was simply improved (bugs were fixed).

This. It's cosmetically identical, but (and I've actually noticed) a lot more stable and even slightly quicker than 4.2.
They seem to have done some significant back-end changes.
