Are Mozilla forcing me to move to Firefox 3

Careful! This post is looking a little old and could be inaccurate in many, many ways

At work I have elected to stick with Firefox 2 as Firefox 3 is still rather new. This morning the browser auto-updated to version and since then websites have started appearing without images. On a number of websites I have visited HTML embedded images (as opposed to CSS Images) have not been loading when refreshing the page, but they do appear when entering a URL in the address bar and when using Ctrl + F5.

As a web developer this is a rather annoying browser bug. Have Mozilla taken the decision to destabilise Firefox 2 in order to push people to download the more stable Firefox 3? I hope this isn’t the case as these aren’t the dirty tactics I’d associate with Mozilla and the Firefox team.
