XP Pro +SP2 'puter doing spontaneous restarts since installing this yesterday. Installed over the top. Any one else getting this?

No problem here......Firefox version 1.06 installed over the top of the previous version.

You might have a corrupt download.I'd do a System Restore to before the update and try again or at least redownload Firefox 1.06 and reinstall it.

seedie, further to gudgulf's post, you could try removing Firefox via Add/Remove and then install v1.06 instead of an over-the-top install.

HTH, dagwoood.

It's best - and Mozilla advises - to uninstall a current version of Firefox before installing the latest version. Settings and configuration remain unaffected.

deleted and re-installed, will keep you informed. Next step is new download and install if this fails.

Thanks for your thoughts
