Nice "Solution"
This is one of the very few problems that ubuntu needs to fix. It
makes me a little upset that they dont put the latest version of
firefox in hoary.
Why dont we get the auto update button in the top right corner like
windows? Is this a fault of or did ubuntu take out this
I know in 1.1 mozilla is supposed to add incrimentle updating which
shou;d fix it (just change what needs to be changed instead of just
"reinstalling" like it does now)
I hope someone addresses this because proper updating can make or
break a distro, especially when its targeted at non 'nux users.
