This'll sound odd, but is there a way to keep Firefox 2.0 from saving over my older version of Firefox?
I've updated my work computer and noticed that Firefox 1.whatever is no longer there (even though, during setup, I asked it very nicely to install in a different folder) ... When I was a Netscape man, I would keep all the older versions on my computer (even though I never actually used them again); I was just wondering if there was a way to do something similar with Firefox.
Are you using a software firewall like Zone Alarm, or is it possible that you have blocked your web browsers in Windows Firewall? In IE, have you set the security so high on the Internet zone that you can't browse?
