Is there a simple way to upgrade from 2.4.3 to 2.4.4? I have modified some of the 2.4.3 files (i.e. footer, english.). Is there a modification to be made to the database files? Do I "simply replace all the files EXCEPT admin/config.inc.php" and the footer, english files. Thanks. Sorry if the answer has been supplied before.

I couldn't say 100% but yes to replacing everything except config.inc.php

I uploaded the new 2.4.4 script and overwrote everything except for the admin/config.inc file. This worked fine for one guestbook, but not for the other. For the other guestbook, the CAPTCHA won't display properly in Firefox. If you watch the page load, you can see that the CAPTCHA challenge is being overwritten by the CAPTCHA refresh button. I have tried uploading a fresh copy and even copying the entire working 2.4.4 guestbook to a new directory. The permissions are identical. Works fine in Internet Explorer, but not in Firefox. I asked a friend to try signing the guestbook using Firefox and they found the same problem. Any ideas? Thanks.

It's a bug I reported a long time ago. If you refresh the page the captcha then appears. Without trawling through all the JavaScript I couldn't say for sure what is causing it.

Unfortunately, in my case a refresh of the page won't result in a display of the CAPTCHA in Firefox. Baffling, just baffling.

I'll walk through the JS when I get a minute.

I've been on a course for six weeks for my new job. I will do it when I get chance.
