Automatic Updates - Do you update?

Hi, I'm using the suite (great idea - thanks!).

What should I do when the app prompts to upgrade. At the moment I'm not upgrading because I fear it will install the full version instead of the portable.

You can let it

The new versions of Portable Firefox and Portable Thunderbird use the full versions of the apps so that auto-update works unencumbered. They're about 8MB and 9MB bigger respectively.

When you do an auto-update with the ones from the suite, the first attempt will fail and the second will succeed. Just be sure to have at least 40MB free on the drive as Firefox needs this and doesn't check for a full drive due to a bug.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
