According to Mozilla there are some 12 million Firefox 3.5 users out there surfing the interwebz, but Mozilla now needs them to upgrade to a more recent release. And Mozilla has drawn up plans on how to accomplish this mass move.

Firefox 3.5 users have two options. Mozilla would prefer that they upgrade to the latest Firefox 4.0.1 release, bringing them bang up to date. Alternatively, if they donít want to go to Firefox 4 (perhaps because a plugin isnít supported) then Firefox 3.6.x (currently 3.6.17, with 3.6.18 planned for release June 21st).

So, how will Mozilla deal with those still using Firefox 3.5?

My parents upgraded *shudder* I don't want to! They messed up with the layout and now some of the buttons are harder to find and I find I am always clicking "open in new window" instead of "open in new tab" :(

Thanks for the reminder. My secondary browser is FF 3.5.x. I'm not big on chasing the latest upgrades for all of my software applications, but it's about time to move off of 3.5.

Just got a new PC, so installing that from the ground up will take care old-Firefox, as well other problems.

I got a new PC in March only because the old one was crashing all the time even tho none of the anti-?? programs could find any baddie on it.

So the new PC has all the newest versions of the programs I use (FF 3.6 tho as 4 hadn't been released quite yet). But what a PITA. About 1/2 of the stuff I used to run doesn't work right now. Win 7 is a PITA for many things even tho better for other things. I still can't get some basic settings to be the way I like them.

I hate upgrades just for the sake of an upgrade.

If it aint broke don't "fix" it.
