    I wish I hasn't upgraded to the new version. I lost most of my add-ons because they aren't compatible...grrr.

    I have heard there were problems with the new firefox. Sometimes I use firefox, depends on the sites I am on and what days IE is acting up for me.
    It is the same with the Internet Explorer 8 upgrade. I never got it to work properly so I went back to IE7.
    You would think these developers would be accountable for putting out a product that would work without all the problems...example..Microsoft operating systems.

    I don't know it's connected but I just had to run and disk check and delete a bunch of corrupted files too.

    You can roll back your upgrade and reinstall your add-ins.

    Thanks for the heads up UW. I have been hesitating about upgrading & now think I'll just stick w/ this version. Sorry about that! I think nicomp is correct, but it is still annoying to have to reinstall everything.
    Sometimes these upgrades aren't! Ugh.

      The price we pay for Open Source (free) products. It's a huge pain for the developers and the end-users to keep all the incremental versions synchronized.

    I tried to roll back but whatever happened erased my previous backups...

      I use FireFox exclusively, but I still have my clients on IE because it's still the 'standard' in the business world. When you buy a computer at Best Buy, you get IE. You don't know about FireFox or Chrome or Safari unless someone tells you. Like it or not, web sites are developed and optimized to work on IE, not FireFox. Most sites still function just fine with FireFox, but it's still not the target browser for most developers.

      HubPages is a significant exception.

    Good point, nicomp.
    goodfriend, I am a Firefox devotee. I never cared for IE, then I switched to Safari once I got a Mac. Since trying Firefox a couple years ago, though, I've never looked back.

    I found a site that had an earlier version so I am back to 3.0.13.
