Firefox 1.0.3 is already available on the CentOS repositories. You should, if possible, use that since it integrares into the main OS pkg tree .

Yep ... another release.

[b]z00dax[/b] also helped me out when upgrading too.

Lots of times the issues people have after and upgrade are related to problems in the [b]chrome[/b] directory:

[b]/home/[/b][i]username[/i][b]/.mozilla/firefox/[/b][i]xxxxxxx[/i][b].default/[/b]

(your username ... and [i]xxxxxxx[/i] can be a random string)

If you shutdown firefox delete the [b]chrome[/b] (or move it - [b]mv chrome chrome.bak[/b]) and then restart firefox, the chrome directory will be recreated. This [b]WORKSFORME[/b] if I have had strange issues after an upgrade ... and I usually don't have to delete the whole profile directory directory.
