My Ubuntu update gave me FF 28 tonight. It appears to render pages slightly quicker. It does however keep reminding me to install flash when ever I load a page containg a flash movie. Flash is installed, and the movie is playing. Certainly hope this gets addresses. Looking into workarounds to silence this "nag screen".

Is this part of the new "click-to-play" feature? I thought flash was the only plug-in not included in that.

I'm assuming, of course, that click-to-play is now part of the newest FF.

Personally I always run with FlashBlock enabled, so I have to deliberately run Flash on the rare occasions I actually need it; which not only is safer but rejects a lot of flash adverts (which may well include virus links!)

Whooo Hooo! A new full version of FireFox -- I'm sooooooo excited and sooooo happy I've only been told how important it is to update once or twice a day, everyday for a week or two -- Great job Mozilla!

It's not like I get headaches from the update notices or anything, really I don't -- Sooooo glad when I click "remind me later" it means, "Tell me once or twice within 24 hours how important it is for me to update." And doesn't wait a few days or anything like that, because these updates are *obviously* very important, to someone, somewhere, I'm sure.

Hi there JD_Toims,
have you not considered changing your browser's update option to...

"Never check for updates"

This will have the effect of immediately removing your need or desire to...

"Whooo Hooo!" ;)
