PCWorld: Mozilla Readies Firefox Patch [pcworld.com]

The 2.0.0.10 update is in testing right now and should be released to the public next week, following the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S. "We are giving it a couple of days to make sure that there are no issues found and we'll release it after Thanksgiving," said Mike Schroepfer, Mozilla's vice president of engineering.

Mozilla is calling on the Firefox community to test the browser during a quality assurance "testday" this Friday.

PC World: Handful of Bugs Squashed in Firefox Security Fix [pcworld.com]

The 2.0.0.10 update fixes a handful of memory corruption flaws that crash Firefox, and a cross-site request forgery flaw that could give attackers a way to get unauthorized access to certain Web sites.

But the most anticipated bug fix in this release addresses a problem in the way Firefox processes files that are compressed using the .jar (Java Archive) format.

Has anyone tried downloading this? I've tried and have not been successful.

The error I receive when I download and try to run the program is "File is corrupt".

I just downloaded 2.0.0.10 and it looks like it working, at least I was able to connect to this forum.
So no problem here.

I've finally downloaded the update. Everything appears to be working as usual.

Haven't had any problems on myspace. =-)
