Firefox 1.0.4 Released

Recommended Posts

Thanks, Thomas!

 

Is it better to totally uninstall Firefox 1.0.3 and do a fresh install of 1.0.4, or can we just install 1.0.4 on top of the (formerly) current version?

So does this mean it is safe to reenable javascript and allow "safe" sites to install files?

from reading a bit on the changes, i believe so. i had that exact problem (exploited) with my browser. and it seems to be solved now that i have upgraded.

I didn't even back up my profile. I just upgraded and everything works. :(

I have been trying all day to get the upgrade with no luck what so ever. I guess their servers are really busy...my update screen just sits there and blinks at me. I'll try later like 3 am west coast time maybe that will work :dance:

I bet they are swamped.

After I installed I tried to look at extensions,

but gave up.
