How many of Firefox's 50 Zillion downloads are in fact the same people downloading it again every time  there's an update because the update facility doesn't work?

I use firefox, and mozilla. Whenever firefox has come out very quickly I might add with a updated version, I have been able to go to that URL, download without any problems or glitches.

I didnt go to the url..    I had the little orange globe thingy in my Firefox..   clicked on it..  it checked for updates and did the 1.04 software update for me without having to go to the url and download it.     

The first time it didnt work.. but it was my fault and stupidity   lol   I forgot I was on without admin rights so I closed firefox and loaded it up with rights and it worked very well

Yes, I can imagine that you were wondering at first what was going on with the download when you couldn't get to it. I personally use my pc with Admin rights. That way I can keep system restore turned off where I couldn't with the limited user choice.

I download Firefox everytime for one, because the update didn't work for me. At least it installs cleanly over the old version now, without the problems there used to be.

Hi Ylap,


Thank you for the notification. I had to wait for the Dutch version that is just out. Also tried the tweak program for Firefox. fine when you are on DSL or cable. But you have to save your old settings first. Some people here in the Netherlands also use Opera (it is a good and safe browser, but I am an anti-adware man, so I do not like the free version of it). Because of my nick I also use the polish version of Firefox (to jest super po prostu).

All the best from me here (pa,pa),
