Firefox updates released (2.0.0.2,1.5.0.10)

What!

You are not running the latest release of your browser?!!!

Mozilla has finally released fixes for several newly discovered security flaws in Firefox. Upgrade to the latest version right away. The latest versions are 2.0.0.2 for the Firefox 2 branch and 1.5.0.10 for the Firefox 1.5 branch.

Infact, I hear that more flaws have been discovered after the update was released so expect another update soon.

I first realized that an update must have been released when I saw that the number of people searching for a way to update Firefox manually using a .Mar file had jumped up quite a bit in the last couple of days (I can see the search terms people used to get to my blog). So I guess I can expect a jump in traffic everytime Mozilla releases a new update now. 🙂

MFSA 2007-08 onUnload + document.write() memory corruption
