Does anyone really care what you think?

Anyone else down it?

Only complaint is that they still don't have a button or right click to open a new tab.

Got it on both my iMac and MacBook. No complaints so far other than it did not bring my bookmarks over properly. I had back them up before the upgrade, so I was able to install those quickly. Other than that no problems.

Step 1: Right click on Navigation toolbar (the one with back, forward, home buttons) -> Customize
Step 2: Drag the "New Tab" button to wherever you want it.
Step 3: Rejoice Cheesy

I didn't know this had been released yet. I've been using the #&%$ Internet Explorer ever since I got that #&%$ Vista. My precious autosave feature, you've returned!

Well, Fark mentioned that someone already found a serious security issue with it, so I won't get too excited.   laugh

I didn't see that thread. You can bet though that MS, not unlike the disease it's named after, wants to cripple all parts of a computer that actually work. Win98, anyone?

^My first computer ran (occasionally) on Win98.  It crashed so often that I had to store every file on floppies in case it had another meltdown that day.  I didn't have a CD burner or I would have just put everything on those.  Ugh. 

Here's the link to the Firefox security thing.

Mmm hmm. And it blocked out the spiritual ancestor of Firefox, Netscape Navigator--which sparked an antitrust lawsuit.

Interesting with the security deal. I appreciate that the site does not divulge the details of vulnerabilities. Geraldo Rivera could learn something from them.

When did MS do that? I've been "into" PCs since the 'beginning' (and mini's, mainframes from the 1960s) and don't recall MS locking out any competitive product - integrating their own browser at the OS level, yes, but that's it. Always able to run Netscape and Mosaic.

Perhaps that was it. We ran Netscape on Win95. We didn't have Win98, so I don't have any firsthand knowledge of the issue. I do know, however, that Firefox 1 and 2 would not work on Vista. They would load just fine, but they could not be opened. Vista wouldn't even offer an explanation as to why. Everything would seem to run just fine, but that Firefox wouldn't run. Firefox 3 seems to be just fine, though.

I do recall running Navigator on my Win98, but I had a hard time getting any updates for it.  That's probably because I had dial-up, too.

Firefox 1 & 2 had to be run as Administrator under Vista due to Vista's security policies and the Firefox team not coding earlier versions of Firefox to work within Vista's parameters:

Administrator doesn't seem to mean much to Vista.
