    Hey Guys,

    You noticed the little red circle on the top right of the Fox ? Version 1.0.1 is released. However, just to point out, it took me 4 goes for the install to work - each time it came up with a rather unspecific error.

    Typical tho - I ran it again, hoping to generate the same error, so's I could post the screenshot here - bloody well worked, didn't it, so no screenshot.

    Best guess at this stage it that Mozilla's servers may be inundated with folks trying to download this (although I am probably completely wrong here !)

    Anyway, just thought I'd point it out to any Fox Fans who may not have noticed.

    HTH :)

    I wasn't able to do a direct upgrade at all. I had to download 1.0.1 from the Mozilla site and run the installer as if it were a fresh install. No message saying it was going to overwrite or uninstall 1.0.0 but it worked. Don't know why the upgrade method failed.

    Yup - a bit odd, as the "upgrade" placed the full 1.0.1 installer on my Desktop (rather handy for later). Not noticed any improvements just yet - anyone else noticed ?

    I ran the standalone installer on one of my machines, no problem. With the other one I have noticed the little red alarm bell so I will try this tonight with the update method.

    Tried the update (red icon) from here at work (behind a proxy and a firewall)
    seemed to work fine, told me it needed to close firefox to continue, closed it up, loaded it a few mins later, all done

    updating my extensions too, pretty clever :)

    Have they fixed the memory leak issue yet?

    No mention of it in the link Trip.

    OK, just ran the updater from within Firefox. It took a while to download but when it finished it ran like it should. I was a bit disconcerted to see the red icon still there when I started it up again so I checked the version number, 1.0.1, and ran the updater again. Reported that there were no updates available and then promptly disappeared. :D

    Yup - took a couple of restarts of the Fox for me too for the red warning to disappear.

    Memory leak? :blink For a second, I thought you were talking about me, Pete. :tongue My memory's been known to "leak" from time to time. :oops:

    Tell me about it :rolleyes: My brain these days can be likened to bucket with a big hole in it.

    Dear Liza, I don't have a straw :cry:

    Same as Phoenix, no problems installing it. The little red circle didn't appear until today (or maybe yesterday) though.

    I ended up with full installer, so had to remove the old versions of firefox and thunderbird as the old installs were never overwritten.

    I think the best bet is just go to www.firefox.com and download the latest package (1.0.2 in this case).

    Thanks Jak, interesting thread, especially the bit where he states computers use base 12 counting :biggrin

    I might give FF another whirl now, I have been using Avant Browser which is based on IE's engine but offers most of FF's bells and whistles like tabbed browsing and pop up blockers etc.

    After updating with todays "wee red arow" update, I realised that when the Fox still displays the arrow after upgrading, clicking on it again so that it finds no new updates makes it disappear !

    HTH :)
