Zenwalk 3.0 + Firefox advisory


This is a warning for those who are new to Zenwalk 3.0
The version of Firefox packaged with Zenwalk 3.0 works perfectly. However, if you allow Firefox to automatically download and install updates, you get a lot of trouble with downloads that disappear from the download box, completed downloads that aren't written to disk, and "Save Page as" webpages that have all the extra image files, etc. but NO html page!

Save yourself a lot of trouble by NOT installing updates. A newer version of Firefox is now available, so this may be a better option.

whether that's the case or not, first thing i do with any program is look for an auto update and disable the junk.

thanks for the tip though.
