Not sure this is a bug, but if it is deliberate I hope you folks will rethink
your policy!  When I've installed new versions my home page is reset; it's a
pain to go back and set it to my own home page, and I predict that this will
discourage people from updating their browser and folks will leave security
holes open.  Resetting someone's home page to your own home page seems tacky to
me, and you guys have otherwise done a fantastic job of avoiding tackiness.  I
love your product!

Reproducible: Didn't try



Expected Results:  
It would be better to leave the user's home page intact when they install a new
version.

My home icon, while showing 'http://uk.msn.com' in the additional text [which correctly confirms my home page] always returns me to the 1.0.7 update page!
