I see Firefox has just released version 1.0.3.

Why?
I'd like to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like his passengers

The folks at Mozilla, rather than issuing individual patches, usually accumulate these and then issue a new version that incorporates those as well as any other bug fixes.
You will need to uninstall any prior version of FF (your personal settings will remain) using the install/uninstall option in Windows. SOME extensions may not work with a new version, and will require a new download.
