the software update test at http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/qa/softwareupdate.html to upgrade from 1.0PR to 1.0RC1 doesn't work. Ben suggests removing the UI for this aspect for 1.0final. 1. launch 1.0PR 2. go to about:config and change the default of the app.update.url pref to http://update.mozilla.org/update/firefox/en-US-1.0-rc.rdf 3. go to Preferences > Advanced > Software Update and click the "Check Now" button. 4. in the resulting software update wizard, go ahead and select the upgrade to 1.0RC1 (it doesn't matter whether or not you select to get talkback or the web development tools). expect: the wizard should download and install the upgrade, prompt you to restart firefox, etc. actual results: very quickly get the "install completed" panel in the wizard --but no upgrade or installation had occurred (still remains 1.0PR).
blocking-aviary1.0, per Asa.

Using Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041103 Firefox/1.0RC2, I still see the UI come up. It says updates are found, then you get a blank screen with the "Install" button enabled. If you happen to click on the Install button you get stuck in a loop and have to force-quit. Reopening, I mentioned this to Ben yesterday.
Not catastrophic, not going to block.

In version 1.0.2 checking (check now) for software updates seems not to find version 1.0.3 (mac os 10.3.9)
The old SWU implementation is gone, closing as INVALID.
