    Alarm clocks reminded me to put an important meeting with the HT in my organiser. Got distracted at the time and forgot.

    If only you could postpone for more than 4 hours - 1 week would be enough

    I updated right away, it actually fixed all the firefox issues I was having with 4. (Had tried several reinstalls etc of 4...)
    5 has hit the right buttons.

    According to the update 3 of the plugins I use aren't compatible with FF5, so I'm ignoring it for the time being.

    Yeah, the big one is Google toolbar, though you can hack it to work fine.

    Stop and set the service to manual and schedule a task to start it once every week?

    Why would you want that when it has a Google Search box as part of FF?

    Must admit I keep ignoring mine at home and work for both FF and Windows Updates, still need to do SP1 at home on W7 as well as at work on my PC to test how it goes....

    Mail alerts, page searching, translation, up a level, favourites, all the add on bits. I have it set so that it uses the FF search box but has the tools available
