New Release: Firefox

Friday, November 30th, 2007 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

New Release: Firefox

That’s right, another new version of the Firefox Web browser has just been released! On November 26, 2007 (just this past Monday), Firefox made its debut into the Mozilla family. It hasn’t even been a full month since the last version ( was released, but when Mozilla sees some changes that need to be made, they don’t waste any time! I know it’s a little overwhelming to keep up with all of these Firefox updates, but we can either do that or work with a browser that’s not quite up to par. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather deal with the updates. Keep reading to learn all about Firefox!

Very few items were changed for this new version, but they were some security issues that needed to be fixed right away. Here they are: 1.) Referer-spoofing via window.location race condition, 2.) Memory corruption vulnerabilities (rv: and 3.) jar: URI scheme XSS hazard. Now, I know all of that may be a little confusing to you, but trust me, they are things you use everyday within Firefox and it’s wonderful that they’re now working properly. We all owe a big thank you to Mozilla for correcting these problems!

Now, the other day, I told you about the Firefox 3 beta version being released and I want to make sure no one’s confusing that with what we’re talking about today. They are two completely different things, so I wanted to be certain that everyone is clear on that. So, when you’re ready, you can download Firefox for yourself right from this link. Just click on the big green “Download Firefox – Free” button and follow the install instructions. Or, you can get the update right from your Firefox browser. Just open it up, go to Help, Check for Updates and it will pop up for you. It’s as easy as pie. Update your Firefox today and be safe!
