Thanks Lee,

They are probably trying to releive the preasure on their servers by removing the direct link. I also noticed that the English (British) version is still on 1.0 not 1.0.1, But I already had the English US version.

That is the reason they gave for removing the direct link. http://www.mozillazine.org/

Yes that is what i noticed, the English US looks just the same though here on 1.0.1, but ill probably change to English (British) again when it comes back.


Anyway, all my extensions, themes and settings work fine with this new build, no updates needed for them at all, so i am happy.
Looks like Thunderbird 1.0.1 is out middle of next week as well, so I'm even more happier.

Yes, but when it asked you if you want to remove the folder 'c:\Program files\Mozilla Firefox' say no then install firefox 1.0.1, that way you can keep all your extensions/bookmarks etc.

Had you checked the release notes, it makes it quite clear uninstall, install.

I might be wrong, but it doesnt keep that info on the program files\mozilla firefox folder, all extention & bookmarks are kept in the C:\Documents and Settings\"Username"\Application Data\Mozilla folder, thats is where Ur profile is kept.

It's always better to uninstall previous versions deleting the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox folder when it asks U & then reinstall & it will pick up Ur profile no probs (with bookmarks & extentions)

Deleting the contents of the program folder does have an effect, I'm just resolving that now SpellBound and its dictionaries were messed up. Although the extension was still installed (obviously in docs and settings\user\app data\mozilla, etc.) the library/dictionary file would appear to have been in one of the sub folders of the program.

I really wish they would get the update side of firefox sorted.

Amen to that one, David.  Until I finally said the heck with it and fetched the 4.0.1 manually, the "check for updates" in 4.0 insisted I was right up to date.

And I sure wish they'd get the documentation, such as it is, in line with what actually happens with the new installation.  According to the website info, all extensions you previously had are disabled until it can be confirmed they're compatible with the upgrade.  But the ShowImage one (the only one I've bothered getting, so far) seemed to stay activated straight through -- but says it can't be checked for updates.

For all the cussing we do about M$, can you imagine how fast Gates and company would disappear if you had to totally uninstall and reinstall Win, IE, etc. each time there was an upgrade to those?

The only saving grace is that the firefox 1.0.1 download is only 4.7MB, there are bigger patches for IE than that  ;D
