Mozilla Firefox ?

I've been using Firefox for about a week now and love it, but everytime I open it, I get a message saying new updates are available. Then it takes me to the page for v.0.9.1, which is what I have. Is there something on this page that I'm supposed to download that I'm completely blind to, or is it just being weird?

I never get this message. Go to Tools -> Options and then click the Advanced tab. In the section of Software Update, which boxes are checked? Firefox updates? Extension updates? Both?

*has both boxes unchecked*

C ya!

Yeah there's a problem with the latest version doing that. I'm sticking with my nice 0.8 version for awhile longer....

I've switched ever since that hacker threat. One question though, how do I get rid of Explorer? Some of my programs still link to it even though it's not my defaul browser anymore? (I know i'm really computer illiterate)

I installed it last week and found a few problems with it. I like it better overall than IE but often links come up with a pop up box saying 'Document contains no data' or something similar. It also takes a while to load and is rather jumpy. I checked the smooth scrolling box but it seems more cumbersome than IE in some way. And now as of today, it wont load any page at all so I'm back to IE until I can be bothered finding out what's wrong.

It's a browser many people are now using Oz. Better in many ways, than IE.

Yeah it's tons better than IE. I notice the promos for Firefox on the Mozilla site but I never bother with it since they were offering Firebird when I needed a browser. I don't get any annoying messages but that could be cause I never technically 'installed' the program, I just run it off my desktop.

I can honestly say that Mozilla's version of browsing is the only reason that I'm able to come to this forum.

Thanks, Marty. I haven't restarted yet to see if the notice comes up, but I'm sure that'll work.

Angie, what you were been getting might have had to do with Java. I was having the same problem for a while until I installed some Java thing....

Its just brill. Mozilla has been my number one browser for a long time now, and now I've switched to the separates (Firefox and Thunderbird).

And I'd never go back, you know the Mozilla releases are just going to get better and faster, while IE will get more bloated and people will continue to pick holes in it. Perhaps as it catches on web developers will start adhering to standards better meaning that there will be even less need for IE, we can only hope.
