Mozilla patches 13 security holes in Firefox 3.5, 3.6

Earlier this week, the Mozilla organization released updated versions of its 3.5 and 3.6 Firefox Web browsers. The updated bits patched 13 vulnerabilities found in the code-base, and 11 of the aforementioned security issues were listed as “critical” by the company. The vulnerabilities ranged from buffer and integer overflows to SSL spoofing. If you’re using Firefox 3.5 or 3.6 be sure to click the “Check for Updates” link under the “Help” menu to grab the latest and greatest from Mozilla. More →

Firefox 3.6 now available, sheds its beta label

You either love it or hate it, and ever since Chrome and Safari upped their games, we’ve been getting a little burned out by Firefox. Hopefully that will all change now with version 3.6 — new and improved (fingers crossed) and beta label gone. It’s now more customizable with additional add-ons and extensions, and it also features something new called “Personas,” which allows you to change the look at theme of your browser if you feel so inclined. Firefox 3.6 also has improved Javascript support as well as better support for HTML5 video, perfect for YouTube addicts excited about the recent introduction of HTML5 vids. If you haven’t abandoned Firefox for Safari, Chrome or IE8, you can download Firefox 3.6 starting today. More →
