Hi folks,

Do you realize Firefox 3.0 is no longer supported? E.g., no security  
updates. Is there any reason you haven't upgraded to 3.6?

Maybe, like me, he's a standard user, and therefore completely reliant
on the official repositories?  Maybe he, like me, is waiting until
10.04.1 (the eponymous Service Pack 1 stage) before accepting Lucid onto
his machine?

I don't count myself as a tinkerer at all really... if I need a new app
not already in the repos, I'm liable to raise enhancement requests...

There appears to be a bug affecting all current versions...
The poster of that thread filed the Mozilla bug at the end.
