4/19    My Firefox 3.6.28 pops up a Software Update box that reads "Your
        version of Firefox will soon be vulnerable to online attacks."  Are
        they planning to turn off some security feature in my version of
        Firefox?
        \_ Not as such, no, but they're no longer developing this version,
