    It's merely a nightly that's stable and fixes the Unicode issue. We already
    know how to do that using Adblock. I've read elsewhere that it breaks
    extensions. I've also read that the most recent nightly will be up as
    Firefox 1.02 by the weekend.

    Why would you care to beta test an update if your browser was working
    just fine before?

    Well, in this case, probably because it contains a fix for a security
    issue that was announced last week, and a lot of people wouldn't define
    "working just fine before" as "having that known vulnerability".

    Isn't it better if the program it self addresses the issue instead of
    having a plugin doing it? and btw it doesn't "break" extensions, it merely
    disables them.

    It does neither here. Upgraded last night, everything works as before,
    no interruptions, no b0rken extensions. Perfectly smooth.

    I went ahead and updated after reading all the things that 1.01 fixes.
    Apparently those who were complaining of broken/disabled extensions hadn't
    uninstalled 1.0.

    Likely, yeah. That's just a Windows phenomena, btw.
