Firefox 2.0.0.8 released

October 26, 2007

I wonder why I have to post about every new update to Firefox. Maybe I’m just lazy.

Oh well, in case you haven’t done so already, stop using Internet Explorer, start using Firefox today! Go get the latest version (2.0.0.8) at http://www.getfirefox.com/.

Do try out the excellent addons as well. My favourite is Ad Block Plus. FoxMarks seems useful. And FireBug is awesome if you are developer working with browser based apps.

Try using some of the keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl+T for new tab, Ctrl+W for closing a tab and Ctrl+Shift+T for reopening the last closed window. They are real time savers!

Update : Seems like 2.0.0.8 was a major update and caused some regression problems which have been fixed with 2.0.0.9 which came along rather quickly.

Firefox updates released (2.0.0.5,1.5.0.12)

July 18, 2007

Update : Firefox 2.0.0.6 has also been released. A rather quick update! 

Better safe than sorry, eh?

Your web browser is what is your gate way to the Big Bad Web. Better get it upgraded to the latest. Firefox 2.0.0.5/1.5.0.12 is out. It should automatically update soon. If it doesn’t, you better do so manually.

Yet again, a bunch of bugs and leaks have been fixed. So get updated and ensure safety for all those banking transactions you do from your PC. Here is a quick list of what they fixed:

MFSA 2007-25 XPCNativeWrapper pollution
MFSA 2007-24 Unauthorized access to wyciwyg:// documents
MFSA 2007-23 Remote code execution by launching Firefox from Internet Explorer
MFSA 2007-22 File type confusion due to %00 in name
MFSA 2007-21 Privilege escallation using an event handler attached to an element not in the document
MFSA 2007-20 Frame spoofing while window is loading
MFSA 2007-19 XSS using addEventListener and setTimeout
MFSA 2007-18 Crashes with evidence of memory corruption

Yes. I love good, free, open source software. Don’t you too?
