Do I have to delete my existing Firefox before I download the new Version 3? Is there an <official> site for downloading the new version? Thanks.

Unless you want to keep the old Profile, I would install the new FF3 in another folder during the point where it allows this option. FF3 is not compatible with lots of add-ins at this time and keeping the version 2.0.0.14 is worthwhile.

If you want to use your bookmarks in FF3, then go to Bookmarks menu in the old version and select Organize Bookmarks. Then from the File menu choose Export and export to the Desktop. In FF3, reverse this by using Import and browse to Desktop where bookmarks are.

The old version will have to be closed if you insist on installing over it with FF3. Personally, I didn't like FF3 and uninstalled it.

Thanks for the clarification and the suggestion (to wait a bit before jumping to V3).

There have been people that like the new FF3. It's a matter of taste, but 80% of my needed add-ins were disabled. Could have kept FF3 in its own folder and switched to the old version easily enough, but I knew I would use it until the add-on developers caught up. Will give it a try later.

If you don't "run on" too many add-ons like I do, you may really like FF3. The old version is still available should you want to download and install it over FF3.
