By now, Firefox 1.0.1 has been out a while. Several friends and clients have called me, asking me why their copy of Firefox is acting weird. “Did you upgrade to 1.0.1?”, I’ll ask. “Yup!”, they’ll respond. “Did you install over your old copy, without uninstalling first?” is my next question. “Yup!”, they’ll respond again. Uh-oh. Not good. Clearly, I’m the only person who bothers to read release notes. But I’m a nerd, so it’s not a surprise.

For the complete instructions for upgrading to 1.0.1, read Asa’s “upgrading from firefox 1.0 to firefox 1.0.1”, an excellent, very, very detailed post on his blog. It looks scary when you first see his post, but it’s long & detailed because he purposely went through every single itty bitty step. Don’t freak. Just read it and follow along. There is no way you can screw up with these instructions. Best of all, he covers Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Very cool. Now go upgrade!
