Wait for Firefox Upgrade

If you use Firefox, you have probably been besieged with requests to update your software from 6.x to 7, but I suggest holding-out for a while. I haven't heard anything, good or bad, about the new Firefox, but there were issues with the Firefox 6.0.x upgrades, including not being able to use Adobe Flash Player. That caused havoc across a multitude of sites and I believe it may have added to the instability of my system, overall.

I rolled my Firefox back to 6.0 and haven't had any problems with it since then. Plus, I noticed that 7.0.1 came out no more than two or three days after I received the notice for the first upgrade to 7.0 - which doesn't bode well.

I am personally waiting for at least a few weeks, and suggest you do the same. If you've already upgraded, please leave a comment to let everyone know how it went and how it's going.
