Mozilla Releases Firefox
Vulernability? Or just stability?

 2:44 pm on Apr 17, 2008 (gmt 0)

US-CERT states that

Exploitation of this vulnerability may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial-of-service condition.

However, Mozilla states [mozilla.org] that

This is being fixed primarily to address stability concerns. We have no demonstration that this particular crash is exploitable but are issuing this advisory because some crashes of this type have been shown to be exploitable in the past.

Either way, get your patch.

It auto-updated and then after restarting told me that I am now part of a beta program and that the real would be released when it had finished being tested...

Looks like I'm one of the testers.

I am not that impressed to find the update was "pre-release". There was no mention of that when it told me that the update was available.

Ok here. Firefox 3 is due for release in June, so just testing that on my other laptop. Seems virtually the same, but has a few nice enhancements.

OK here too. I never received the beta program message. Are you running a beta language version?

One of the things I like about Fx3 is the AwesomeBar. The revamped URL bar. Nice.

I think the address bar is nice too. Nice seeing the website name as well as the url. Before I had urls and I couldn`t remember the site by just looking at the address.
