With Firefox 1.5 Beta and a free Opera Browser making the headlines, this isn't front-page news, but Mozilla has also just released Firefox 1.0.7 in response to a recent Secunia advisory. Mozilla Suite 1.7.12 should follow shortly.

FYI, here's the background.

'extremely critical' flaw has been found in Firefox 1.0.6 running on Linux or Unix [news.zdnet.co.uk]

Sooo, if I'm a Windows user, I can ignore this update and wait for 1.5 before upgrading?

No. 1.0.7 also contains a fix for the IDN bug, and for a bunch of regressions caused by previous bug-fix releases.

The word is that people are actively trying to cook up an exploit for the IDN problem, so it's best to update if you're still using 1.0.6. Should be pretty seamless.

... And Mozilla 1.7.12 is now available as well.
