How is this version working for everyone else? I have Vista 64-bit Premium Home Edition.
I finally decided to hit the button that said "you're version of Firefox is outdated, update now?" Firefox 8.0 downloaded.
At first, everything seemed fine. Didn't mind the format. Liked some of the new features.
Then the system started to drag and funky things started to happen. Being the cautious person that I am, I removed it completely and restored the system. Everything is fine now and I'm using I.E. currently.
Historically, I have experienced issues with Firefox upgrades in the past. Either from unresolved bugs or incompatibility issues with other programs (not necessarily Mozilla's fault).
Should I try downloading it again or download an older version I know works? Thoughts please?
Another question not just for Firefox. When companies say you should always upgrade to the latest version of their software "to ensure there are no security threats", is this truly necessary?, is it CYA?, is it the company promoting their new product?, or a combination of all three? Opinions?
All always, thank you in advance for your help.
