Firefox update alert

For any of you out there that use Firefox browser...beware. The update from 1.0 to 1.0.1 may make all of your favorites disappear. By disappear I mean gone, never to return, c-ya, bye bye. You get the idea. This happened to my stepson Josh. He is not happy! He now refuses to use Firefox and I don't blame him. Firefox is quick to import your Internet Explorer favorites and settings, but does it import your Firefox bookmarks and passwords? I guess not in this case. It just deleted them in favor of installing a new profile. I have promoted Firefox for a year. Told everyone how good it was, how secure it was, how cool tabbed browsing was etc... But I didn't know they would have to be somewhat tech smart to do a simple upgrade. Josh is very smart. Who would expect to have to backup your settings if you were not told to on the main Firefox download screen. I now am afraid to update Firefox. So I'm updating it on another computer just to see what happens. "D"

I sugested to develop firefox by adressing the worse things first.

Gues what happend? I was banned for pointing my finger were it hurts most. They called me a TROLL and IP baned my isp but didn't write 1 word about the why part!

Keeping the bookmarks true the update does not belong on the end of the TO-DO list in my book! Bookmarks are by far the most important thing to keep?

Why they are all wrong:
Wrong web design
