    OK, I broke a long standing rule of mine today, and upgraded a software application on the day it launched.

    And I got burnt.

    Many of the Addons which I rely upon (and most importantly the RoboForm menu bar) don't work in the new version.

    Oh well, Hopefully I can roll back to the previous version.
    And wait until the new release settles down, and addons are upgraded.

    EDIT: in case anyone needs it, v2.0.0.14 isd available from

    (Couldn't find anything earlier than 3.0 on the firefox site)

      Harsh, yeah sadly not all that stuff comes out as quickly as the browser itself. I would let it go for a few months personally till i upgrade.

    I was lucky, only a few add-ons perished in the upgrade.  One importnat one for me was lost but it is easily replaced by google's toolbar I guess.

    A lot of my add-ons were visual ones like a theme called "FoxDie Blue" and the rounded URL/search boxes.

    Eric - One of my people warned me against this very issue.

    Coincidentally, it was one of the people you rejected big_smile

      Yes, I train them well before I send them on. lol
      The rest of my people warned me about it too - but I didn't listen.
