First time I updated it freaked out on me going so slow. Than the download stopped half way threw and said something about "Corrupt File"

Just restarted the update [ BTW: I'm doing this via FireFoxes built in Updater ] and it worked fine.

I still use Opera, but Firefox also is a cool browser to use! But all are better than Internet Explorer..

Ah good, they fixed that Javascript memory exposure security flaw already. Cool.

I thought the last one was 1.0.3...... I have not upgraded yet from the last time this was posted about a month ago and it says im running 1.0.3

Is this because its just a minor fix?

Where and when did you download from last time? If Firefox says it's 1.0.3 then it is, but you must have downloaded the new fixes at some point. Mine still says 1.0.2, but I'm going to update it now.

I've not done any extensive testing, but I know the annoying sitepoint popups are gone now.
