FF Update to 2.0.0.4, 2.0.0.5

I finally got the courage ( as I am not of the computer generation)
to update FF 1.5.0.12 to 2.0.0.4, then to 2.0.0.5 at the invitation
almost insistence of Mozilla every time I use Firefox. Only 3
extensions not possible to update at this point, only really useful
extension is Auto Fill, wish the author might update for 2.0.0.5. The
update was flawless, Firefox continues to operate as before with, as I
notice while typing this message, an automatic spell checker, very
useful. Firefox is the best, continues to get better.

If the missing extension is important to you, you can adding the
following to your   about:config
     extensions.checkCompatibility   as Boolean and setting to False.

Obviously you would be bypassing something that was intended
to make sure that developers kept their extensions up to date, when
usually it makes no difference, especially if it works within 2.0 and
you are still within 2.0 after update.  You will see red exclamation
points over the addons icons  for those with "version incompatibilities".

Firefox is turning into a piece of crap. First, there is only 1 profile, the default profile. Second, after the first 2.0.0.6 update wiped out the profile settings (again), the automatic check for updates was turned off. This morning the customized profile settings went MIA again, Firefox decided it was version 2.0.0.5 (per the help, about firefox) and automatically downloaded 2.0.0.6; even though 2.0.0.6 had already been installed on July 31.
