Mozilla Firefox 3.0.6 Released

Wednesday February 4th, 2009

The sixth minor update to Mozilla Firefox 3 has been released. Firefox 3.0.6 fixes security vulnerabilities, improves stability, improves the ability for scripted commands to work properly with plugins and resolves a handful of other small bugs. The security fixes are detailed in the Firefox 3.0.6 section of the Security Advisories for Firefox 3.0.

The Firefox 3.0.6 Release Notes have more details about the fixes in this minor upgrade. Existing Firefox 3 users are expected to get it via the software update feature built in to the browser or their own operating system's update facility.

As a reminder, Firefox 2.0.0.x is no longer supported and contains known security vulnerabilities. Users should upgrade to Firefox 3 by downloading it from the Firefox product page

#12 What happened to FF?!

I am a Windows XP user, with all updates, etc. When I updated to 3.0.6, it completely screwed up FF! The browser opens SO slowly and when it does finally open the pages load slow. It asks for my master password multiple times (instead of just once, like before), and it has been freezing and crashing - something the old FF never did. I don't know what they did to it, but they need to fix it! I have been using FF for 2 years and lately I've actually thought about switching back to IE!
