Firefox Update

Hi Folks,
Late last night, FF on my laptop was updated from 8.0 to 8.0.1, when I tried to do the same on my desktop, it said no updates were available for 8.0 and was up to date.

A quote from MozillaZine:

"Only Mac users will get idle/manual update from 8.0 to 8.0.1 for a java fix while Win32/Linux Firefox 8.0 users will not get any updates (need to download full build if they really want it) while 4.0 to 7.0.1 users on Mac/Win32/Linux should get a update prompt to 8.0.1. The Linux users (Fx 8.0) do not need 8.0.1 and the 8.0.1 is a option for Windows users who use Roboform and do not or cannot update Roboform as otherwise there is no need for 8.0.1 for them also."

Firefox Update 32.0
I updated to Firefox 32.0 and since then Youtube videos have taken ages to load, for example opened up a video link on YouTube 20 minutes ago, it is still loading as I'm writing this, should I downgrade to an earlier version or might it be my internet that is really slow? Um right so cheers.

Firefox update 20.0 not so good.
The new update for Firefox mess up all kinds of things on my computer. I used a restore point back to 19.0.2 and I think things are back to normal. I suggest you have a good restore point before updating Firefox. Hope this helps someone.
