    I just installed firefox 1,0 and it wiped out my windows update version5 and six other processes stating it was not compatable with firefox 1.0. Well I have been useing firefox 0.93 with it's little bugs trying to give it a fair chance. But after installing 1.0 I will never use firefox on my computer again. To repair the damage it did I had to do a system restore. Doesn't look like they are getting the bugs out yet.

    Oopps! That doesn't sound good.

    I am on 0.9.3 at the moment.

    Do you know what FF 1.0 actually wiped out?

    :eek:

    It said that my antivirus was not compatable, don't know which one. And one of my at programs again it didn't say which one. It said sun java1.50 it said my fugi digital imaging was not compatable and as I said it said it had disabled MS windows update ver.5 and what ever else it did it would not allow internet explorer to connect to the internet. It also killed all the programs I have set to lock IE homepage And internet options and opened it right up. In my opinion mozilla is sliding backwards fast. I do realize that this is not a final release but it is worse than their beta releases.

    I just installed over 0.9.3. I lost some extensions and themes. These are being rewritten by the authors.
    It will update correctly now in the themes or extensions window.
    My bookmarks remained intact.

    It installed well for me.

    I just remembered that firefox said that windows explorer was not compatable also. That is funny as this computer is only about four months old. and everything else runs on it

    ... hmm ... that is a pain indeed. I hope they develop it slowly and take their time to ensure everything is fine before the final release. No point trying to catch up with the Version numbers. I think you should email the FF team about those issues and hope they can deal with it quickly.

    Ronjor

    ... have you noticed any changes? Similar to that of BigC? Have you checked carefully.

    :doubt:

    Did you install over 0.9.3? I don't ever remember getting those compatibility messages you are talking about.

    This is the best install I have had yet.

    It is nice to finally be able to update extensions from the window.

    I never installed Over the older FF version.

    FF's instruction is to uninstall the older version first and then install the new version. But you need to save / back up your old profile before installing the newer version.

    Correct me if I am wrong?

    I can't find a shortcut to my newsreader but other than that, it's fine.

    I updated some extensions and themes right from the browser. Some are still not ready.

    I said to heck with it and installed over 0.9.3. Worked great.

    If using xp with system restore, why not?

    First uninstall the older version, your settings, profile etc. are in a different folder and can stay there.

    LOL ... is that the new FF logo ... LOL ... I thought it was a "turkey" ... sorry but it took me a while to actually see the "FF" ...

    How about the Window Explorer thingy like what BigC mentioned before. Any problem with that?

    How's your IE? Window Update etc., ? Working?

    :)

    That is the theme window with Noia Extreme installed.

    I checked IE and windows update after reading what bigc said and it works fine.

    Thanks Ronjor for the glimpse of the FF extension and the info. Sure looks good.

    I never tried Extension before so perhaps this time I will try to tart my FF up a bit ... that is if I am confident enough to install it before the final release.

    :)

    P/s: Usually I just used Add/Remove Program in the Control panel to Uninstall FF that's all ... I never tried to delete anything at all. Then I just installed the newer FF version.

    On this install, Firefox disabled the extensions that wouldn't work as well as the themes that wouldn't work.

    After I installed, I went to the extension editor and checked for updates. There were several that were ready for installing.

    Did the same with the theme manager. Some were ready.

    The extensions that won't work are grayed out. You can check from this window for updates.
