Firefox 3 Dos and Don’ts

Firefox 3 Dos and Don’ts

By now, I’m sure you all know that Mozilla recently released the third version of their ever popular Web browser Firefox. Yes, Firefox 3 has been available for a couple of weeks now and while most people were in a big hurry to install it for themselves, there may be a few of you out there who are waiting just a little while longer. And that’s exactly who this tip is for today. So, if you’ve yet to download Firefox 3, please listen up!

Installing a new version of a Web browser is a big thing and you shouldn’t rush through it. You should prepare yourself and your computer beforehand in order to get the best results. With that said, here are a few dos and don’ts you should follow before installing Firefox 3. (Note: These are brought to you by one of our best WorldStart message board users: “HARLEY!”)

First of all, don’t install the new version over your old version. If you do that, you could end up losing all of your files and your extensions will probably not work. So, go ahead and uninstall the older version first. Then go and start the new install. Doing that ensures a clean install and a better working browser. You should also do a full back up of your files before you begin the install. That includes all your bookmarks, your log in information and anything else you think you’re going to need. I know those are only a few suggestions, but that’s pretty much all you need to do. If you take your time, you’ll be able to enjoy Firefox 3 that much more!
