There Is Now A FireFox 16.0.2 BUT I Have Not Installed. Worried What It Will Do.

After nearly a decade of being a beta tester and a recipient of AUTOMATED FireFox updates, just 2 days ago I changed my preferences in FireFox ‘options’ so that I get notified of updates, but they are not automatically installed.

So, a few minutes ago I got a notification that FF 16.0.2 was available — which is not a surprise given what a disaster 16.0.1 has proved to be. I am going to be cautious. I will wait to read reaction on the Web BEFORE I do the deed.

So, this is a heads up to you all. PLEASE share your experiences with FireFox 16.0.2, hopefully ALL GOOD, with us. I will post them for you.

Thank you. Cheers, Anura.

Delicious FireFox 16.0.1

New Delicious Add-On installed in my FireFox 16.0.1.

There is a NEW Delicious bookmarking add-on that works with FireFox 16.0.1!

But, you don’t get it automatically even if you have the previous, now defunct, Delicious add-on installed (albeit disabled). That is crazy. There is NOT even a notification that a new version is available. Stuff like this drives me nuts. FireFox has an incredibly loyal user base — some of us who have been with them for over 10 years. Don’t be so hostile! Communicate. Help us, and we will help you.

When you install the add-on you will have to re-install the menu bar buttons IF you disabled them when Delicious stopped working with FireFox 16.0.1.

I haven’t used the add-on much at all, as yet. Just installed it a few minutes ago. Accessing Delicious via the menu bar icon seems to work. Haven’t tried to bookmark anything as yet.

Just a heads up, because I know that there is a lot of angst about Delicious and FireFox 16.0.1.

Hope this helps. Cheers.
