Firefox Upgraded

Firefox, the excellent browser from the Mozilla project, has been upgraded to version 1.0.7. If you’re using IE or an IE-based browser, it’s long since time to have switched.

This release is billed as a security and stability release, that’s normally a good reason to upgrade your system if you’re already a Firefox user. Bueried in the release notes, though, is still this item:

Prior to installing Firefox 1.0.7, please ensure that the directory you’ve chosen to install into is clean and doesn’t contain any previous Firefox installations.

It’d be really good for software to be able to update itself without users having to jump through these hoops.
