Firefox Update

Firefox has just told me there is an update to V 3.0.1


Firefox 3.0.1 fixed several issues found in Firefox 3.

* Fixed several security issues.
* Fixed several stability issues.
* Fixed an issue where the phishing and malware database did not update on first launch.
* Under certain circumstances, Firefox 3.0 did not properly save the SSL certificate exceptions list.
* Updated the internal Public Suffix list.
* In certain cases, installing Firefox 2 in the same directory in which Firefox 3 has been installed resulted in Firefox 2 being unstable. This issue was fixed as part of Firefox
* Fixed an issue where, when printing a selected region of content from the middle of a page, some of the output was missing (bug 433373).
* Fixed a Linux issues where, for users on a PPP connection (dialup or DSL) Firefox always started in "Offline" mode (bug 424626).

When I installed this I was redirected to the Firefox site where I was thanked for helping test the beta version of 3.0.1.

Not beta for me. When I loaded Firefox this a.m. I was told there was an update. I went to the update page from the Help tab and downloaded from that. No hint of it being less than the full final version.

Thanks for that €dstowe

I had used the MajorGeeks link yesterday.
Now downloaded via the update function within Firefox and all is OK. The MajorGeeks download was 7.324 Mb whereas the in prog update ony 6.99Mb so obviously MajorGeeks not up to date ...again!

Drop 'em an Email or post on their forum,if they have one,and let them know.
I found that the web capture function for my GeneralKnowlegeBase database program would not work with 3.0.1.
Posted on their forum this morning and it has been fixed already with thanks for pointing it out to them.
