    How impressive !

    When FF stops updating their software every few minutes and decide to enter a world of practical user stability, then please re-issue your thread and I just may listen.

    Until that hopeful day comes, I would advise everyone to use FF version 3.6.21.

    The "must have the latest" syndrome can have it with pleasure. I remember many occasions in the past when people who crave the very latest model of car seconds after market release have had nothing but trouble, whilst my old jalopy runs circles round them.

    Well, according to my updater my Fx 6.1 is up to date. I can wait for the 'official' release.

    I think both 6.0 > 6.01 and 6.01 > 6.02 were just to fix the certificate problems that arose recently.

    Above link works fine. Tested 10 times ;)

    By the way, direct links are not allowed on Wilders.

    I believe you mean 6.0.1 and note that there's a difference between a release being official and it becoming available through the updater - there's usually some lag. That said just waiting for the updater eliminates the possibility of grabbing an incorrect build.

    I agree with you John
    it has been a mess since FF has started their new Version thing
    ad-on's not working, small bugs in the software and when they are fixed
    about 3 versions later then some more bugs pop up and more broken ad-on's
    it just goes on and on

    I finally gave up and downgraded back to 3.6 and you know what
    no more problems and I can not tell any difference in speed

    I will stay here until things get better and then I will maybe try again

    I hate when a product gets patched and they go "Oh it's more secure now." Though in this case I suppose it's attributed to the certs?

    Remember that the Microsoft patch for IE is cumulative.

    What do you mean? Are you having to do a full install? What is your OS? (I've turned off signatures since my browser is slow according to most people ;) and my net connection is even slower according to me.)

    Yes, I thought they discouraged direct download links only, but perhaps one of the forum admins will clarify.

    Wilders would rather see links to a product's description page rather than to the direct download link of a file. There are times when we do allow direct download links, but it all depends upon the structure of the product's website, their policy about linking, and past experiences involving difficult to get at files.

    At a minimum, direct download links should be labeled as such and please do not try to disguise them. Wilders attracts many new visitors and we don't want them to be alarmed when they click on a link, suddenly seeing a download dialog box.
