    FWIW, I have updated my Windows 7 64 bit FF now to 4.0.1.

    RANT BEGINS

    What I find so frustrating is the seeming inability of all these SW providers to properly test their products before inflicting them on us users (me!) Then even after the "bug" is fixed according to THEM it reoccurs in later updates.

    The vendors seem to have no-organizational ability to learn from their own errors and prevent them from reoccurring.

    The bugs are10 years old in XP? Nobody noticed? How unacceptable is that?

    IF they did do proper vulnerabilities testing, IMHO NONE of these vulnerabilities would exist EVER!

    When INTEL bought McAfee ( what a choice) and I began to think that we may see os's and security software hosted in chips. I thought at 1st great the bad guys won't be able to mess with these things any more.

    Now all I see with that is the buggy dumb error repeating vendor logic will get locked in chips and we will spend the next 10 years doing flash updates like for BIOS!

    END of April Rant
