I assume you are using the nightly builds download (what url did you use), since the regular download page still shows 0.9.3 as the latest version.

Thanks RejZor, I used the default bookmark for Firefox Help which takes you to the texturizer.net site and they haven't yet updated their site.

Downloading it now, absolutly screaming along at between 3.5 and 4KB per second (sharing with browsing, etc.), oh the joys of dialup.

P.S. Thanks for the heads up Connie

gotta love it..     and yes I updated Thunderbird to..   Be VERY sure to uninstall THunderbird before doing the new 8.0.    You will NOT lose your addresses...    if you dont delete it first you'll get a boatload of probs.      

Im using the Noia 2.0 Extreme Theme in both... .  super nice

The only hassle at the moment is several of my extensions are not compatible with the 1.0PR version. Many are reported (possibly incorrectly) as not being compatible with firefox .10 (not 1.0), so it woild appear that the version is not being correctly identified.

This could be just a bug in the extension recognising the 1.0 PR version as .10 when many extensions have a minimum version number of .9 or .8 for compatibility. So if we have any firefox forum registered users they could check it out.

The most important (for me) would be the BBCode extension as 1.0 still doesn't like posting on forums.

Hopefully this will be resolved quickly.

Thanks, Connie quite a few of my extensions were reported as incompatible during the re-install and I clicked the option to update extensions. However, several including BBCode didn't update, so I assumed that there was no update available. I have set it to uninstall at next restart and I will download it again.

Looks like I having all the fun with glitches and the latest version.

I tried to download the BBCode extension, only to bump into the Install Software block. Even though I have the site added to the Allowed Sites, firefox keeps poping up the block (see image). Has anyone else experienced and if so did you find a solution ???

DavidR.. hummm..   it happened to me with one extension.  
I added it to the allowed sites  (allow websites to install software)  and it installed fine for me.     Maybe try removing it , and adding it again???

I completely uninstalled, rebooted and re-installed firefox 1.0. I then uninstalled all incomatible extensions, closed firefox and started again.

update.mozilla.org is in the allowed sites, I have tried a number of extensions and the same problem, install blocked. I have cleared them out now and have to shut down to be sure and then try yet again.

Edit: Well looks like I'm stuffed, no joy what so ever getting over the Install Software block, even though the site is allowed and the 'allow website to install software' and the update.mozilla.org is in the allowed list. I even tried going to the homepage of the bbcode extension and adding that to the list but still blocked.

Without the Download With, Sort Bookmarks, Allow Right-Click and BBCode extensions firefox for me is unworkable, so it could be back to 0.9.3 and wait for a more stable version of 1.XX without the PR suffix.
