#10 Organizations: do NOT install this update without

Who's the brain who

1) made all the passwords on sites where you have more than one no longer work (there in the options, but don't work when you enter them!!!!!)?

2) didn't tell anyone about this "wonderful" change?

Yes, there is some security fix, but I (ME! Not a phishing page) am selecting the username, all firefox has to do is enter the aligned password.

If you are in an organization or have any staff, do NOT install this update without knowing that most of your passwords will have to be re-entered!!! Do not let staff install this, because you'll then have lost mornings where people can't work and emergency calls saying they can't log into the intranet, or websites, or anything.

So, that's great, now have to go around to every computer and re-enter old passwords that are already saved in the profile!!!

AND the unsearchable password manager is a joke. "DO you really want to show the passwords?" Yes, I do, because I just clicked the damn button that said that - only to find I can't then actually copy the password I'm wanting to get, so have to write them all down.

Who thunked up this one??????

(I also like how a system crash loses all firefox bookmarks and resets the toolbars, homepage, and such. What the heck??????)
