I've heard that web visum won't work.

    Good morning. When I opened Firefox I was prompted for an update.
    This link says Firefox 4 is hear.
    http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/3.6.16/whatsnew/
    I hesitate to download the update until I hear I won't lose any
    accessibility features like Webvisum and bookmar creation. How do I
    contact the FS employee? If the update won't be worth it, how do I
    make this message go away when I open Firefox? Thanks.

        Hi all,
        no reason to worry too soon here, since there is a former FS
        employee from Germany on Mozilla's Accessibility team.
        Regards,
        Nermin

        Hi. Today's Wall Street Journal has an article about version 4
        of Firefox that is about to be released. Speed and look appear
        to be the featured improvements. But the following passage makes
        me wonder about accessibility and whether screenreader users
        might be advised to wait before upgrading:
        Gone are the layers of tool bars, status bars, the bookmark bar.
        Instead there is a row of tabs-much like Chrome. Interestingly,
        Mozilla is sticking to the more traditional address box on the
        left and search box on the right like IE and Safari. Chrome has
        combined the search box and address box into one.
