So it seems that we have a new set of patches for Firefox, and that the next version has a little change to it.
The article I have read indicates that there are a bunch of critical issues patched up with yesterday’s update to Firefox, but that none have been exploited. What seems to be the biggest thing has been some issues that cause memory corruption and crashes. Now I’m not a programmer, but that sounds to me liek a big deal. The real question is, how long will it take for the autoupdate feature of Firefox to get the update? Its the one failure in my mind of the browser. I know I hear about an update, and sometimes the autoupdate doesn’t get it for a month or longer. With critical patches, you would think it would get to you a little sooner than that.
Also in the article the next release of Firefox is now 3.5. Makes sense if you ask me, since they are doing a heck of a lot to the browser, but not quite enough to warrant it being called 4.0.
