    As it should be!

    I've tried them all and nothing comes close to RoboForm, IMO. :thumb:

    FF 8.01 has been pulled from the Moz FTP

    What this means is third-party sites will no longer or should no longer deliver this build until further notice.

    People should not announce updates to FF on this or any forum unless they have been released by Mozilla. These false announcements are annoying. :mad:

    Agreed. I feel the moderators should not allow these sort of posts which happen with regularity as far as Firefox is concerned. I have argued for quite a while against linking to anything but the release page but to no avail. Anyway, maybe there's something I'm missing here.

    @ anyone reading this thread

    If you feel links posted to software that you use often are erroneous, use the report bad post feature to make the links aware to the site Moderation Team.

    State clearly in a few brief words why you are flagging the post, it will be investigated

    As siljaline has pointed out (and by the way siljaline used the Report Bad Post Feature to report the matter to us), with hundreds of daily posts, it is almost impossible to catch everything, no matter how hard we try. Making a comment on a thread just adds to the clutter, but a Reported Post is sent to all of us. We encourage our members to "report" questionable posts, so we can investigate them and take appropriate action, if warranted.

    Re: Firefox 9

    Firefox 8.0.1 is available. Release Notes. Release Channel users may not be seeing the update available via the automatic update feature.

    Use the above link in lieu, if necessary.

    FWIW: Firefox Portable can update itself just like the regular Firefox build (Help - About Firefox - Check for Updates). No need to wait for the PA release on website.

    I downloaded FF 8.0.1 from there website http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all.html and I thought it would overwrite the old files so it left me both 8.0 and 8.0.1 so I had to uninstall both and start from scratch so I'm back to 8.0 and will wait till the internal update tells me there is a new version :mad: Win 7 x64 not good. o_O

    That's interesting. I downloaded the installer (British English) also from that site on my 32 bit Vista notebook & ran 8.0.1 with no problems. I then used a copy of that installer & ran it on my Win 7 64 bit desktop & it is fine.

    Daveski17, while you can update Firefox Portable, as guest has indicated, read Clarification on updating Firefox Portable? to know what's updated, when you choose that option, provided you are using the PA Platform.
