Firefox 3.5.8

Send Article to a Friend

Despite the fact that Firefox 3.6 is available, those who haven't yet upgraded should pay attention to the just-released Firefox 3.5.8, which addresses a handful of critical security vulnerabilities, all of which could lead to memory corruption and the running of arbitrary code. These issues include several JavaScript-related crashing bugs, a vulnerability that existed in the way Firefox's Web Workers handled various data types when processing posted messages, and a problem with how the HTML parser freed used memory. Detailed information regarding the update's security content is available on Mozilla's Web site. (Free, 19 MB)

Click on link but goes to version 3.6. Does this mean Intel only?

Not sure what you're seeing, but both of the above links are to 3.5.8 - the first one to the Older Versions page, and the second one to the release notes.

I've been having problems using the new Firefox versions with URL Manager Pro. The Apple events in Firefox need to be fixed apparently; it is very inconvenient.
