Apart from fixing "various web compatibility regressions", it only fixes one low security vulnerability, something to do with FTP PASV. Is that it? I mean in the Release notes they don't elaborate on what web compatibilities are fixed, as it is, was it necessary to get out an update right now?

I think the regressions were responsible for the early update, not the low-impact security issue

Anyone else get prompted to "upgrade" from to after they installed I just had this happen and now it says I'm back on again:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070219 Firefox/

So, I checked for updates again and it downloaded yet again. Very strange!

#7 downgrade from to ?!?!

is there any chance that might have somehow "installed" again, instead of actually installing

would that possibility explain it wanting upgrade "again" ?

I upgraded to, and then made it check for updates again, and it says there aren't any updates. I think that got fixed in the meantime...

If it actually had installed, then the about window was wrong. :-) I have several installations of on different computers and it only happened on one so far. I'll keep an eye out. Thankfully, it didn't harm anything and is working just fine.

It's also happened to me. I guess there is a problem in the check-for-updates process.

Yes, I have the same problem. However, after I accept the downgrade, it still show version 2.0.03 when I restart firefox.

I tried to check for update again but it told me there is no new update. It shows "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070309 Firefox/" when I click 'About Mozilla Firefox' in the help menu.

#10 "Customize" changes do not stay in place.

When I drag & drop items to the tollbars or menu bar, they do not stay there after I restart FF Neither do the icons remain small. This began happening just before I even knew there was a v. So I actually that was a strong hint to upgrade. It did not work, in any event. One Icon does remain in place, however, the one I care about the least; Stumble Upon.

Thanks , DV

I'm guessing corrupted profile. Try backing up and deleting your localstore.rdf file.
