In case you have not had an update notification from your Firefox browser (I'm aware on occasions this does not happen) the new version 2.0.0.2 is now available for update.

Also please note that if you have Java version 6 installed, Firefox will inform you it is not compatible with it. As with the last update, this information is incorrect and the Java works fine

Safe browsing you lot!

I think that Mozilla staggers the announcements to keep the server from getting too busy. In any event you can update by clicking on Help and then "check for updates." The file is 744Kbs, so it doesn't take very long.

FYI,Today from the Firefox Support Forum;

When you install JRE 6 it adds an extension to Firefox that adds a menu item to the Tools menu to open the Java Console. There is an error in the set-up file for the extension that only lists it as compatible with Firefox 2 and not Firefox 2.0.0.* - This causes the extension to be disabled when you upgrade Firefox, but JRE 6 will still work normally. The only difference is that you will no longer have a menu item that opens the Java Console (most people will never need this).

This extension is hidden so will not appear in the add-ons manager. The extension is installed in the application directory rather than the profile folder. If you look in the extensions folder within the application directory (default location C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\extensions) the extension will be in a folder called {CAFEEFAC-0016-0000-0000-ABCDEFFEDCBA}


Chaos reigns within.
