    to Firefox 3.6 tomorrow. It has been years since an upgrade or update has caused problems for me, but you never know!

    For a simple program like Firefox imaging/snapshot is overkill. Instead I would just make a backup of the profile.

    Hopfully 3.6 works properly. 3.5.7 doesnt like me saving sessions.

    Backing up is always a good policy but I don't understand why it is necessary in case of Firefox upgrading . Firefox is not integrated into windows, it is just a thrid party software. If anyone encounters any problems they can simply uninstall it without messing up their systems. Backing up becomes important if you are upgrading something like Internet Explorer, which is integrated into windows and an incompatibility in IE's case can mess up your entire system.
