When I click on 'help' to see the version it says Firefox/3.0
I did not upgrade from 2 on this computer, and in fact get daily offers at the bottom at the task bar to upgrade now to FF3.
Just curious about this.
If I roll back to 2...and how could I do that?...would it show as the version 2 on the 'about' box?

Hi,

I had to downgrade back to FF2 after slow start up speeds when trying to run FF3.

You can download direct from Mozilla Here.

Id recommend uninstalling FF from your system first and then installing so that you start over a fresh.
Dont forget to export any bookmarks so that you have them to import after re-installing.

Firefox gives you the option of upgrading, it doesn't just automatically upgrade.

I manually upgraded to FF3 on release day and upgraded on both of my PC's and my laptop, both PC's run fine but for some reason issues when using it on the laptop so i downgraded back to FF2 there.
