Here’s a quick update for all our Mozilla Firefox web browser users. Mozilla has updated its popular web browser Firefox incrementing the version to Firefox 3.6.11. This new version fixes several stability and security issues found in the earlier version Firefox 3.6.10.
Users who are already using Mozilla Firefox can update to the latest version by using clicking on the Help menu and selecting Check for Updates option. Firefox will also automatically let know users automatically about the update very soon.
Firefox 3.6.10 stability update fixes a single stability issue affecting a limited number of users, found in earlier version 3.6.9 of Firefox. If you want to get more details about the issue, then you can visit the Bugzilla listing for a list of bugs fixed in Firefox 3.6.10, or you can read more about the actual bug listing of the bug that caused the stability issues.
Firefox 3.6.9 users should receive automatic update notifications in the browser already, (mine is already updated) which is a sign that the bug fix is critical for stability of the Firefox web browser.
Mozilla recently released a security update for their popular Firefox web browser, version 3.6.7. Firefox 3.6.7 fixes several security issues that were found in the 3.6.6 version. Over half of the vulnerabilities fixed in Firefox 3.6.7 were listed as “Critical,” which is the highest danger level that Mozilla associates with security issues.
Mozilla has now done a quick update of Firefox 3.6.7 to Firefox 3.6.8, which according to The Mozilla Developer Center blog, “fixes a single stability problem that affected some pages with embedded plugins”.
Mozilla has just released Firefox 3.6.6, less than a week after the release of the long-awaited Firefox 3.6.4 version. Firefox 3.6.6 fixes a stability issue in the web browser. This update addressed issues with the new plugin handler causing issues with the immensely popular Facebook game Farmville. See bug 574905 for full details.
Firefox 3.6.6 modifies the crash protection feature to increase the amount of time that plugins are allowed to be non-responsive before being terminated.
The developers have increased the time that plugins are allowed to be non-responsive before they are terminated by the browser. The timeout was set to 10 seconds initially and now has been increased to 45 seconds in this new release.
Mozilla has finally released Firefox 3.6.4, the latest security and stability release for Firefox. This release provides crash protection for Windows and Linux users by isolating third-party plugins when they crash. The feature is like that in Google Chrome as it runs plugins in their own process to increase browser stability and security.
Out-of-process plugins are enabled by default and make sure that a crashing plugin will not crash the browser itself as well. Firefox can now prevents Adobe Flash, Apple Quicktime and Microsoft Silverlight crashes from bringing down your entire browser on Windows and Linux computers just like Google Chrome does. Read the Crash Protection FAQ for more detailed information about this new feature.
Firefox 3.6.4 will bring in a new era of Mozilla Firefox web browser. With Firefox 3.6.4, Mozilla is not releasing just another minor update to its open source browser, but rather are going for a new Firefox evolution. In today’s tough competition in the browser market with so many tough competitors, it is very much-needed for Firefox to have a secure place. If you see closely, you will find that Firefox 3.6.4 has swallowed the development of Firefox 3.7 as Mozilla wants to boost the stability of Firefox through the introduction of a completely new feature, which is designed to cut off plug-ins from the main Firefox process and run them in as a separate process.
According to Mozilla’s latest plans, Firefox 3.6.4 is scheduled for release on June 1st, 2010, almost two months after the earlier release, Firefox 3.6.3, which was a critical security update.
Mozilla is the first web browser vendor to fix a vulnerability exploited at this year’s CanSecWest Pwn2Own contest. Just one week after a U.K.-based hacker known as “Nils” broke into a 64-bit Windows 7 machine with a Firefox vulnerability, the open-source group shipped Firefox 3.6.3 to plug the security hole.
The latest Firefox 3.6.3 update update fixes this critical security vulnerability in Firefox 3.6.2. This is a highly recommended update for all Firefox 3.6.2 users.
Mozilla has released the Beta version of its upcoming web browser Firefox 3.6. Firefox 3.6 Beta is built on Mozilla’s Gecko 1.9.2 web rendering platform, which has many improvements for web developers, Add-on developers and users. This version is also faster and more responsive than earlier versions.
Firefox 3.6 Beta (revision 1) is the latest development milestone of the next version of the Firefox web browser. As beta software, this release is considered to be stable and safe to use for daily web browsing, though the features and content may change before the final product release. At this time many Add-ons may not yet have been tested by their authors to ensure that they are compatible with this release. If you wish to help test Add-on compatibility, please install the Add-on Compatibility Reporter – your favorite Add-on author will appreciate it!
