The thing I hate about FF and TB

    I like the programs, really, but I've just updated Tbird v0.8 to v1.0
    and updated FF from v1.0PR to v1.0. And most of the extensions and
    themes do not work. The update found a very limited number of them but
    most were disabled. I then have to trawl through them manually one by
    one visiting each one's website and downloading and updating them
    individually. Its a real pain and suddenly I'm in a world where all my
    familiar interfaces and buttons are gone until I've done it. In most
    cases its not that they are not available, just that FF and TB can't
    update them.

    Yes and no. I could pay for Opera and I like that less that Mozilla ;-)

    Most of the extensions usually work... they just don't have the new
    version number set for "max version allowed" in the extension. And it's
    not Mozilla's fault it can't update the extension... talk to the author
    about including a proper link ;-)

    Its still a right PITA every time you upgrade though.

    I think it's getting a lot better though. But like I said... the blame
    shouldn't totally fall on Mozilla. But I do agree that it's a kind of a
    PITA upgrading your extensions sometimes.

  7. It is getting better. When I installed TB1.0, only one extension was
    disabled, which I was able to updeate manually by editing install.rdf.
    Most worked fine. Themes are another issue, but then again, they pretty
    easy to fix.

    and paying for an amputation would be "paying for what you get rid of"

    some people pay for trash pickup, other people dump it in the neighborhood's creek (bad bad!)

    so OT :)
