A popup appeared, saying it wanted to change all my information into links. Being a geek, I chose the "edit them individually" method since I didn't know if the links would be correct. Then I read the following text:

Confirm the Pages that will be on your profile
Uncheck any Page you don't want to link to. Linking to education and work Pages may also create additional Pages, such as for your major or job title. If you don't link to any Pages, these sections on your profile will be empty. By linking your profile to Pages, you will be making these connections public.

If you don't link to any Pages, these sections on your profile will be empty. By linking your profile to Pages, you will be making these connections public.

You are about to remove this information
If you don't link to any Pages, the following sections on your profile will be empty:
  • Work and Education
  • Current City
  • Hometown
  • Likes and Interests

They're empty now. Others have noticed this too."

In other browser news, Mozilla just released Firefox 3.0.5 and 2.0.0.19 today. 2.0.0.19 is the last 2.x, and there will be no security updates. Upgrade to 3.0.5 and use an addon if you've been holding back for url-bar related reasons. Still no official MSI from Mozilla, so Windows admins, prepare your installations with care."
