Mozilla Corp. on Thursday patched its Firefox browser against 12 vulnerabilities, 5 of them labeled "critical" by the Mountain View, Calif. company.
Firefox 18.104.22.168 is the fourth security update to the 1.5 edition of the browser since it released last November. The number of holes plugged in 22.214.171.124, however, is only half that of April's mega-patch, when 24 total, 11 of them "critical," were fixed

However, I am happy to report this one went off without a hitch ;)
Other than that all the upgrades have been seamless. The auto-upgrade feature is great, and I feel safer knowing that my browser is always patched as needed.
Make sure that "app.update.enabled" is set to "true."
The current value for "app.update.url" is https://aus2.mozilla.org/update/1/%PRODUCT%/%VERSION%/%BUILD_ID%/%BUILD_TARGET%/%LOCALE%/%CHANNEL%/update.xml
There was a problem during a certain version transition that caused some of these settings to disappear from the "options" settings, and the only way to change them back so that auto-update works is to go into about:config and do it manually. Sorry, but I've forgotten the details. As I recall, another way to fix it is to uninstall Firefox, then re-install it (your bookmarks and most settings will be retained).
