uum what do you mean? A new version got released.
Since upgrading (automatic not through choice) I have noticed that there is a significant start-up delay when first initialising the browser, does anyone else have this issue?
TheOpiProject: Minor software update release, minor bug fixes etc ;)
and I quote from mozilla dot com
Firefox 3.6.6 modifies the crash protection feature to increase the amount of time that plugins are allowed to be non-responsive before being terminated.
Please see the complete list of changes in this version. You may also be interested in the Firefox 3.6.4 release notes for a list of changes in the previous version.
So as Dc notices - what happened to 3.6.5?
They skipped it. My best guess is that 3.6.5 probably had other changes/fixes incorporated as well, but was found to have a defect. So since they wanted to 'rush' to get the timeouts increased, they probably removed everything else and just shipped the timer change patch.
This is pure speculation, but a plausible explanation for "skipping a rev."
Sounds about right, but I can`t understand why they didn`t just add the updates to 3.6.5?

No, all fine here. I`ve had no issues with Firefox since v3.
I can't say I notice any additional start-up delay. It was already rather slow for me as I've got too many tabs open!
However, Since FF 3.6.6 I seem unable to print anything?! If I try to print or print preview, I get a massive delay when the browser is unresponsive (several minutes) and finally an empty dialog box, "Warning: Unresponsive script". The print preview then appears, but actually printing gives a "Printer Error - An unknown error occurred while printing".
When trying to print (without preview) I do at least get a message in my "Warning: Unresponsive script" dialog... "Script: chrome:://firebug/content/chrome.js:1242". A compatibility issue with Firebug!? But disabling Firebug does not sort the issue? I just get a different unresponsive script... "Script: chrome://global/content/printPreviewProgress.js:23"
Anyone else have this issue?

Sorry, scrub that - it was a problem with my print server, not Firefox! Eeesh! It seems it was coincidence that I'd just upgraded Firefox.
WARNING - the checkbox for "make Firefox my default browser" was checked by default when I updated yesterday.
I know that many Firefox users are using it as their default, but not me. This kind of automatic opt-in really ticks me off.
I am now getting a security message asking me to upgrade my adobe flash player because the new update is "incompatible" with the new version upgrade! I did this - but it tries to automatically install McAfee thing onto my toolbar - damn cheek!
But, since I have left Laptop off all day, the new upgrade still is quite slow to boot - and the previous version was a lot quicker.
