Right, two things:

1) What gives firefox the power to change my homepage without me knowing? Shouldn't I be concerned?

2) Why do they suggest that I download the latest release from a browser which I'm updating because of it's download vulnerabilities?

Incase you don't know what I'm talking about; I'm using Firefox 0.9 and when I started it up I was greeted with:

Nah! They're just trying to catch up with the past masters of the art Growly.

However, I'd be a bit peeved too if I intended to remain vulnerable so, if you feel enclined, drop them an email, I'm sure you'll get a fair hearing.

BTW, I've been trying to update IE, not that I use it but, it's still lurking afterall. Just will not work for some reason via windows update, I'll have to dig it out of the MS admin downloads (win2k).

Cheers Murray ;P
