firefox updates ;-)
« on: July 26, 2006, 07:38:24 PM »
you can download the whole program again or wait till they get it in the "auto update" and it is a lot smaller !(488K on linux)(565 windows)
so if you are on a dialup, it might be best to wait a few days

would say likely July.27 (as it was originally July.25) as it got delayed due to one fix, though not everybody will get incremental update right away.
that is a mod on the ff support forum
then
firefox
help
check for updates

and what it does is based on the settings you have set in preferences

edit(if linux) or tools for windows)
preferences (linux) options(windows)
advanced ( the gear)
update tab

yep i saw it was released
BUT i do not want to download the whole program, just the update

my way  is  quick and reliable
i have done it before with ease !!

and just a tip to all

sometimes doing a overwrite ( hayc 59's way)
the bookmarks will get lost
(go look at the support forum for firefox and read a few pages )

and occasionally  firefox can't find the bookmarks

mitch



well if you
click "bookmarks"
manage bookmarks
file
manage export


you can export your bookmarks to a file !

then any troubles just do the above but select "import"

don't know about you but i have a bunch of bookmarks and they are as valuable as the computer to me  ;-)
