Okay, point noted.

@ neva sorry for the macho automatic he instead of trying to write an unsex 3rd person also for choosing your thread to express what I see in this topic.

@ AlexBishop I chose to respond to your post, because of your position at Mozillazine and thought that perhaps it would be read by more folks here. Point is, and this was in my post, this is a change for some of us end users that will take awhile to digest. For myself I was very surprised when I came to the forum and read about it. I have been on the back side of the moon for awhile and had no idea that this was coming. (back side of the moon= teaching myself to make SVCD and DVD out of ten years of video footage i.e. 6 to 12 hours of rendering time) I started with Mozilla 5, remember back when one had to write in their own pop3s into the profile.js? Anyway, since seeing this post I've unzipped a Phoenix for the very first time and tried to import my Mozzy bookmarks, doesn't work and thought gee, they are telling to start all over again. Well, in closing; I like Mozilla, it starts faster than I can take a sip of coffee on my machine(with out preload) and every thing is now finally there under one hat including my favorite, as you might guess, SVG.
