Exactly, and who could miss such an upgrade message?!

After installing Firefox, you must su - to root, and run
``firefox'' before running it as any other user.  If you do not su - to
root, you may lose some of your user settings.  If you try to run
Firefox as a normal user without first running it as root, the browser
will not show up.  This is a known issue with Firefox, and they hope to
address it in a future release. 

What else is the GNOME team supposed to do? Do you want them to call you
at home, send you a personal fax, drop by your house? Come on man, READ
before you go asking questions, and ESPECIALLY before attacking those
who work the hardest to help you out.
