[OCLUG-Tech] upgrading browser

Hello to everyone

I currently run Mandriva 2008, with Firefox, which is quite
outdated now. I want to upgrade the browser to the most recent, version 3.6,
but I do not want to upgrade Mandriva at this time.  If I install the new
browser, will I retain all my current settings? We were going to do the
install from the Firefox home page, but reading the Firefox instructions, it
seemed  as if it would be an entire reinstall that would not retain the
current settings. It also mentions dependencies which we won't know until we
try to install; at that point we probably will not be able to get back
online to obtain them.

Has anyone got any experience in this matter?

Thanks in advance!
