Were we discussing the OS? I thought we were discussing ports in general and
firefox in particular. Ports have seperate security issues; they are not part
of the OS, hence the security message displayed after any port is installed.

Constant *vigilance* is neccesary - whether or not you update depends on the
situation and the reason. In my earlier posts I was just trying to indicate
how easy this would be with portupgrade. Now I find that there's something
even easier called porteasy, and you apparently don't need the entire ports
tree to use it.

this system is great :) so many different ways of accomplishing the same goal.
