When you go to update FF, why doesn't it d/l verion 2.0 instead of 1.5.xx? Will it ever do that, or does it need to be manually d/l?

The option to upgrade from Fx 1.5.0.* to 2.0.0.2 will be made in the near future. It is unlikely to be made available within the next couple of weeks to avoid overloading the servers which currently have a heavier than normal load following the recent release of 1.5.0.10/2.0.0.2

For more info see http://wiki.mozilla.org/Major_Update_1.5.0.x_to_2.0.0.x

If you do not want to wait for the major update you can download the full installer from http://www.mozilla.com

I think they are going to let the dust settle on this update first.... Not only to lessen the load on the servers, but alo so as all the problems caused by the minor update can be soved befor the major one takes place.

Hang in there ... You can update manually of course (I would recommend backing up your profile first)
