Security update for FF released today. http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

Now I don't mind doing this on my Windows rig, as it will keep the extensions and such intact. What I'd like to know is if there's an equivalent way to keep my bookmarks and extensions on my Linux (Mandrake) install? What files do I need to save?

Because of the huge number of Firefox installations they are staggering the 1.0.1 rollout. Wait a week or so and you should be able to upgrade through the Firefox's Software Update .

Alrighty, I won't worry about it much then. Seems like it would have been easier on their servers to just release a small patch than cough up a whole new version for 27 million people to download, but I'm sure they have their reasons.

The 1.0.1 auto-update is available now. It basically downloads and installs the entire 1.0.1 right over 1.0, but my profile seems to be intact.

I got a message in the Firefox window claiming that there wes a "critical update" that should be downloaded. I did it. It downloaded 1.0.1 over version 1.0.

Now Firefox sticks. Crashes. Does not respond. What ever you want to call it. I was wondering if others had the same problem.

(I am running XP and had no problems of this nature previously to this download.)

My guess is that's either the result of the over-top install or a profile conflict. Try an uninstall/reinstall first, deleting your profile second.
