Firefox 3.1 to 3.5 Version News

Have you gotten Firefox 3.0.7 yet?  It was just released yesterday.  To pick up that update, (if not setup to get it automatically) just go to Help in the menu bar, then “Check for Updates…”.

Firefox 3.0.7 fixes five security holes, so it is an important update to get. 

  • URL spoofing with invisible control characters
  • Upgrade PNG library to fix memory safety hazards
  • XML data theft via RDFXMLDataSource and cross-domain redirect
  • Mozilla Firefox XUL Linked Clones Double Free Vulnerability
  • Crashes with evidence of memory corruption (rv:1.9.0.7)

Along with those, there are a number of different bug fixes too. 

To help better reflect the number of changes coming to Firefox 3.1, Mozilla has decided to rename it Firefox 3.5. However, the next Firefox 3 beta will still be released under the 3.1 name.  That should cover all the important information – but if you want to learn more, check out the status meeting notes via the Mozilla.org wiki.
