Mozilla has released Firefox 3.6.14, a minor security and stability update to the open-source Web browser that’s approaching a major new version. Mozilla doesn’t say much about the changes, which were equally small in the previous few updates, but it’s worth updating if you use Firefox on a regular basis, just to make sure you have the latest code. And now, that means Firefox 3.6.15, which fixes a problem in 3.6.14 that prevented some Java applets from loading. (Free, 17.6 MB)
