I don't understand how people care so much about the version numbers. I like the quicker updates, as for the version numbers, they're irrelevant to me. Be it Firefox 4.5 or Firefox 9, how does it really affect you? It doesn't.
[sarcasm]Yes, because it's outrageously time consuming and complicated to edit the "install.rdf" file and change "maxVersion" from "8" to "9".[/sarcasm]Burty117 said:This means add-ons have to update in order to work with newer versions.
They do have automatic updating...Rapid-release is stupid until they put in automatic updating.
Some IT depts have to manage a lot more than 50 workstations... The solution does not involve running about with a USB flash drive. Setting up your own local mirror for updates is the better option... firefox allows you to override where it pulls updates from in about:config, so it's simply a case of you setting up a mirror and updating it when a new release is made. Your workstations will then connect to the mirror and pull updates from there - saves bandwidth as well time and effort...As an IT guy who has to manage installations on about 40-50 computers, going around and manually installing it every ****ing month is really a pain.
