Is that a real problem ?  When I have encountered such
a problem in the past, I have typically followed this
sequence :

1) Rejected the new browser
2) Realised the error of my ways
3) Adopted the new browser, but
	kept a copy of an older one for legacy pages
4) Thrown away the legacy browser

The overall timescale is usually less than six months.
