Mozilla Patches Firefox

Have you updated your version of Firefox yet?

Mozilla Corp. Thursday updated its Firefox browser to fix 7 flaws, including 4 pegged by the open-source developer as “Critical.” Of the four critical vulnerabilities patched in Firefox 1.5.0.7, none are currently being exploited, Mozilla said in detailed descriptions of each fixed flaw. In fact, Mozilla said in several of the descriptions that it was not sure whether the specific vulnerabilities could be exploited, but had issued patches just in case.

Book Of Mozilla Easter Egg

Easter eggs hidden away inside of programs is nothing new. What I didn’t know till this morning was that even Firefox has a few tricks up it’s sleeves.

It was a lot of fun to read but one thing that really struck me as interesting was this about:mozilla “Easter Egg” that they mention. The Book of Mozilla has been something that even the first version of Netscape has had in it. You can pull it up in Firefox/Netscape by typing in about:mozilla into the Address Bar and pressing Enter.

Sports Fox

I am not really that big of a sports fan. If you are not wearing wrestling tights or boxing gloves, you are not going to get my attention. I shouldn’t let me hate for other sports stop me though from spreading the word about a cool sports-related extension I found though.

Backing Up Firefox

One of the best tools I have found thus far for backing up your settings and profile in Firefox is MozBackup. I have tried them all, and this freeware program is the one I keep coming back to.

MozBackup is a simple utility for creating backups of Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, Mozilla Suite and Netscape profiles.

It seems like some other backup programs for Firefox miss something, or don’t restore just right. MozBackup does just about everything right, and hasn’t done me wrong yet.
