Fx >> 3.0.1 Major Update Released

Keep in mind this updates is optional and you are presented with three choices:

  • select Later if you don’t want to decide now; Firefox will ask again in 24 hours
  • select Never if you don’t want to accept this upgrade offer; we might send you another offer again in the future, but it won’t be for several weeks or months
  • select Get the new version to continue on with the upgrade process!

Also, as with any other Firefox update it is going to wrong a ‘background-check” on your add-ons and automatically disable any that are not supported in Firefox 3. In the event you do have incompatible add-ons you will see this screen instead:

Clicking on ‘Show List’ will display a screen showing the incompatible add-ons with an option to check for newer version

  1. There still is no stable release for Tab Mix Plus. Its a shame, as that is the most useful addon for me, alongside Firebug. And I need Firebug only as a developer…

    The dev build works well so far: http://tmp.garyr.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9178

  2. And what about those who don’t have the right GTK version required for Linux FF 3.0.1???
    Are people in this situation going to get continually nagged about upgrading??
