Has Mozilla pulled FF 3.6?
only offering 3.5.7 downloads

I've been having tremendous problems with a FireFox 3.6 upgrade. My install became unstable and was crashing every few minutes. This morning it began crashing immediately after opening. I uninstalled and went back to 3.5.7.

Today when I went to find 3.6 again I noticed that all the downloads on the Mozilla site had reverted to 3.5.7.
[mozilla.com...]
The page says 3.6, but the file offered for download is now 3.5.7. Was 3.6 too unstable for everybody else too? I don't see people here complaining about it.

Maybe a temporary glitch - I saw it too but it's back to showing 3.6 again. I'm a little wary of 3.6, I've downloaded it for my laptop, but I'm sticking with 3.5 on my desktop until the add-ons are updated.

I didn't notice any chatter on MozillaZine about it and I'm sure there would be threads on the subject over there if FF3.6 got pulled.

Maybe they saw my thread? ;)
It does appear to be back to 3.6 from here as well. It was odd to me that 3.5.7 was on there for several hours and I didn't see any chatter in the usual channels.

They probably pulled FF 3.6 after my report (hehe) about a serious bug: [webmasterworld.com...]
