And I hope people people update their computers fairly regularly:  there
was an update to Ubuntu's Firefox 1.0.2 (that include the patches that
are in the official firefox 1.0.3) that was released yesterday:

http://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-security-announce/2005-May/000130.html

(by the way that low-traffic ubuntu-security-announce mailing list is a
great way to stay in touch with all the security updates that are
released; anyone can subscribe to it)

It's a easier to simply upgrade Firefox using Ubuntu's repositories than
installing 1.0.3 by yourself; and that way you keep using some
Ubuntu-specific feature in Firefox that you generally don't find in 3rd
party backports of Firefox (like the fancier gnome file selectors)
