Mozilla retires Firefox 2

Firefox upgrade prompt
As expected, Mozilla has pulled the plug on Firefox 2. There will be no more security updates, and no more support for the web browser. When users download and install the latest update for Firefox 2, they're greeted with a message suggesting they upgrade to Firefox 3 which is generally both faster and more secure than Firefox 2.

Of course, some people don't like the way Firefox 3 handles bookmarks or tabs, which could make them reluctant to upgrade. But I'd recommend upgrading for the security enhancements alone. You can always search for Firefox add-ons that enhance the bookmark manager or tab positions.
