New Firefox Update Released Today – 3.5.8

The next time you launch Firefox, you should be prompted to install the latest Firefox release – V3.5.8.  Yesterday I touched on the importance of keeping ALL the software on your computer updated with the latest security patches, so it’s only appropriate the folks over at Mozilla released an update for Firefox after reading my very groovy article. ;)

Firefox 3.5.8 Release Log

On a serious note, if you’re a Firefox user it’s important to grab 3.5.8 as it includes several Security Patches in addition to a few stability updates (Yes IE hater, Firefox has security bugs also.)  Although the list is relatively short, the Firefox Security Advisories page shows Version 3.5.8 corrects 3 Critical Vulnerabilities which could be used to run attack code on your computer with no user interaction.  <nasty>

      @Rod – And to think I “just” wrote a How-To for Firefox 3.6.2 just a week ago… Goes to show the importance to keep your system updated with the latest updates. If it’s important enough for Mozilla, Microsoft, etc.. to update their software, it should be important enough for us as consumers to apply the updates.

      BTW – welcome to!

      :) True true however notice I wrote the article back in Feb. 2010. It’s hard to see it but look at the bottom of the articles to see the release dates and Author.

    Updates? Blah. 1. I pay over 4c per meg so it’s expensive. 2. If something going to break – updates will do it. 3. Bleeding edge techonology and who wants to be the guinea pig? I update everything once every 6 months (testing after each product has updated in case of chronc failure) anddo it over a public wifi so I don’t have to pay, even though it means a 3 hour drive into a town.
