Firefox 1.0.3


Upgraded to the latest Firefox yesterday. It’s a maintanence release but fixes several security issues so is well worth having (and of course one of the many beauties of Firefox is its small download size). Given the huge number of extensions I have installed and the warnings over some extensions breaking I was surprised how painless this was. After installing Firefox I went through the extension list and upgraded most of them to the latest versions. Seems that anything that was broken by 1.0.3 has already been fixed by the wonderful extension authors :-) The only trouble I had was that at some point in the process I lost some settings (mainly those set by about:config). As I had backed up my profile before upgrading I could just compare the old prefs.js to the new one and restore anything important (with the browser shut down of course). Happy again (especially given that my profile is probably a horrible mess by now, to be fair. Think it may be time for a clean one when Firefox 1.1 arrives!)
