Now Available: Firefox

Now Available: Firefox

If you recall, in last Wednesday’s issue of the newsletter, I informed you that Firefox version would soon be released. At that time, it wasn’t finished yet, but I told you it would be on its way very soon and well, it has arrived! The new Firefox was released this past Friday (November 2, 2007) and it is now available for download. I know several of you are already aware of this, because you’ve been e-mailing me non-stop about it, but just in case some of you haven’t heard the news, I’m here to give you the full scoop!

In the last article, we talked about how version had just been released and how Mozilla quickly started planning for another new release once they found various problems within it. (You can read that full tip here if you’d like). A number of bugs were found in the version and a couple were even classified as critical. Mozilla said there was no way to fix those problems without creating a whole new version. We’re all very lucky that Mozilla was able to identify the problems so fast and get everything straightened out. Don’t you agree?!

Now, because of the issues that occurred, it’s possible that some of you experienced some startup problems with your Firefox browser. I’m sure that was very frustrating, but I assure you the problems have been fixed. You can download Firefox for yourself right here, if you haven’t done so already. Or, you can just open up your browser and Firefox will automatically download it for you. If it doesn’t start, just go to Help, Check for Updates and it will be done. It’s highly recommended that you get v2.0.0.9 as soon as possible. It only takes a couple minutes to do, so what are you waiting for? Update your Firefox today!
