Firefox 3.5.2 fixes the following issues:

Several security issues.
Images with ICC profiles now render properly on all monitors.

Let's hope so.

When are they pushing 3.5 to 3.0 users?

Safebrowsing, same as in Firefox 3.0.x -- The unsafe-site database is provided by Google.

See Firefox Tools->Options->Security "Block reported attack sites" and "Block reported Web forgeries" settings.

This happened via automatic update (from my experience at least) on the day version 3.5 was launched.

encyclo, I thought automatic happened on my machine, but I am not sure it did. I may have gone after it. I was surprised to find my wife's FF had not updated. I had to go to their web site and install.

I just got an automatic update to 3.0.13 so it doesn't look like they have pushed 3.5 to everyone as of yet.

Same here. I've just one machine left with 3.0.x on it for testing purposes so I don't want to update it.

No auto update here, either, but the manual update worked.

On mine (w Mac), the auto update didn't work when it attempted partial update; but then auto updated using full version of 3.5.2

Shortly after upgrading to 3.5.2, it crashed for no apparent reason (I was not using the Firefox window at the time). After the crash, it would not restart, nor would it run after double clicking. I attempted a uninstall/re-install, and it would no longer install (immediate crash).

I was forced to drop back to 3.013

They haven't "pushed" 3.5 as an auto-update yet, which means that most everyone is still using 3.0 unless they manually checked for an update. Take a look at your own sites' stats - unless your visitors are real web savvy, 3.5 isn't making much of a showing.

I am wondering when it will be set to an auto-update. There is too much noise in Google to search for it, and I don't know where else to look.
