Why am I being pestered (with pop-ups that are now getting bigger) to update to firefox 3.5.7 when 3.6 is available and promoted ? Is the 3.5.7 a better choice for now...my computer is a little older (slow) and I'm fairly happy with the way my 3.5.6 operates...
The last time I updated my Firefox, it became a bit of an ordeal, took a lot of extra work to get it running. So.....3.5.7 or3.6??

Because of security issues, browser is one of those programs, which you should keep current, so I suggest you install 3.6.

You say your computer is a little older.
According to Mozilla 3.6 is 20% faster than 3.5. So go grab it :thumbsup:
