The nag screen to make me update is coming up every two days when I click 'ask me later'. This is not 'later' in my book, it is going to take longer than two says for my av supplier to update their plug-in, I'll bet.

Ok, I know in the grand scheme of things it's not a big deal but ffs, even Adobe can get their head round giving you a choice of how long before you want to be nagged again. And they used to be really demanding!

Even the support page does not recognize the update... OR Pandora (no listening with Firefox now), Google, mozilla support, etc.. This has been an issue way too long what's up mozilla?

Warning: Firefox 3.6 will only be maintained with security and stability updates for a short period of time. Please download and install the latest version of Firefox from mozilla.org/firefox.

While on the support page I pull open the Help tab and look at the version below, 8.0.1.

Help Tab:

Firefox 8.0.1 Firefox is up to date You are currently on the release update channel

Whenever I download something, especially smaller files such as a .jpg or .torrent, Firefox scans the download for viruses. In theory this is a good thing. In practice, at least for me, it means my browser is locked up for as long as 2 minutes (average is closer to about 10 seconds) while it scans the file that I have ZERO concern over a virus in the first place. Now, it's entirely possible that because I'm not a gaming nerd my computer is "slow" by elitist standards (2gHz is slow?! 2mB RAM is slow?!), but that is neither here nor there; I want this "service" gone and I want it gone now.
