Firefox 1.0.2 Released – Reclaim the web!

And as we are on a geek tip, Firefox 1.0.2 has been released with some security updates.

Mozilla has begun rolling the Firefox 1.02 security update. It has appeared with the little fanfare and without the staggered rollout of 1.01 – have Mozilla sorted their distribution worries?

Why Use Firefox?

“Beware of spyware. If you can, use the Firefox browser.” – USA Today “Better than Internet Explorer by leaps and bounds.” – FORBES

Popup Blocking
Stop annoying popup ads in their tracks with Firefox’s built in popup blocker.

Tabbed Browsing
View more than one web page in a single window with this time saving feature. Open links in the background so that they’re ready for viewing when you’re ready to read them.

Privacy and Security
Built with your security in mind, Firefox keeps your computer safe from malicious spyware by not loading harmful ActiveX controls. A comprehensive set of privacy tools keep your online activity your business.

Smarter Search
Google Search is built right into the toolbar, and there is a plethora of other search tools including Smart Keywords (type “dict ” in the Location bar), and the new Find bar (which finds text as you type without covering up anything).

Live Bookmarks

RSS integration lets you read the latest news headlines and read updates to your favorite sites that are syndicated. (This means you can easily watch blogs for new posts as long as they have RSS/XML/Atom feeds)

Hassle-Free Downloading
Files you download are automatically saved to your Desktop so they’re easy to find. Fewer prompts mean files download quicker.

Fits Like a Glove
Simple and intuitive, yet fully featured, Firefox has all the functions you’re used to – Bookmarks, History, Full Screen, Text Zooming to make pages with small text easier to read, etc.

S, M, L or XL–It’s Your Choice
Firefox is the most customizable browser on the planet. Customize your toolbars to add additional buttons, install new Extensions that add new features, add new Themes to browse with style, and use the adaptive search system to allow you to search an infinite number of engines. Firefox is as big or small as you want.

Setup’s a Snap
At only 4.7MB (Windows), Firefox takes just a few minutes to download over a slow connection and seconds over a fast connection. The installer gets you set up quickly, and the new Easy Transition system imports all of your settings – Favorites, passwords and other data from Internet Explorer and other browsers – so you can start surfing right away.

My favourites would be:

1) Adblock
2) BBCode
3) Bugmenot
4) Dictionary Search
5) Forecastfox
6) LiveHTTPHeaders

    Hmmm that’s weird, haven’t seen it before..

    Sounds like of your config files is corrupted, try doing a fresh install, uninstall and delete the whole directory and the config files in your profiles, then re-install.

    I had the same problem. It was a result of the WordIQ Toolbar extension, but since I appear to be the only one to have downloaded it, then your problem must have come from elsewhere.

    I got it too, annoying. I tried removing firefox and reinstalling after downloading a new version. But it had all of my old extensions and preferences and all of my old problems.

    Just uninstall the WordIQ Toolbar, close firefox, and try it for couple times. it should just go away.
