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

For what it's worth, I also received that same date "December 31, 1969" when doing something with an application about a week ago...but, unfortunately, I don't remember what I was doing when I received it!

I've only been a Firefox user since the middle of January and am trying to learn how to use it properly. It seems to be even slower in boot time than IE 6 and I was surprised. I've had a few crashes with it and each time it told me that no log error could be created; perhaps that is normal? Anyway, when I discovered some articles about the "Java Quick Starter" (to improve speed, I guess) automatically being installed with Firefox and how people were having problems with it, I followed the advice given and disabled the Java Quick Starter (you can't uninstall it). Since then (last Saturday), I "think" I have seen some improvement with Firefox...although I have discovered it does not like Hotmail very well!

Anyway...that's my two cents worth...and I really am curious where the date of "December 31, 1969" came from, too!
