  • Correction: Firefox vulnerability update

    Just a quick update on something we posted yesterday concerning a security vulnerability found in Mozilla’s Firefox web browser (see the original post here). First, this incident was NOT a zero day attack, as was originally reported. The exploit was discovered by a group called “The Zero Day Initiative” but was not actually a zero day exploit.

  • Firefox 3 flaw found, could be exploited by hackers

    This kind of sucks. After all the ballyhoo yesterday regarding Firefox 3 and it’s 8.4 million downloads comes word of the first vulnerability in the browser, a zero day attack (see update here) that would allow an attacker to trick a user into executing their code, which could wreak all kinds of havoc on a computer. The details of the hole aren’t given, so hacker types can’t… Read More

  • Mozilla keeps promise, Firefox 3 here on June 17th

    Next Tuesday is Firefox 3 Day, according to Mozilla’s developer news web site. The most recent release candidate was made available on June 5th yesterday, so that’s a pretty quick turnaround – a sign to me that the browser’s definitely stable. I’ve spoken to a number of people who have been using the various Firefox 3 betas and release candidates without very… Read More

  • Firefox 3 Release Candidate 2 available

    Head on over to to grab the latest release of the almost-finished Firefox 3 if you’ve been keeping up with the various betas and release candidates. The second release candidate should probably be the last one before the browser makes the leap to the final version and word on the street is that this latest iteration is definitely stable enough to use full-time.

It’ll be here “sometime in June,” Mozilla’s VP of engineering, Mike Schroepfer told CNET.

  • Firefox 3 RC1 released: Now we play the waiting game

    Firefox 3 is now in the release candidate stage, with RC1 now available to download. The release notes can be found over at Mozilla, but the biggest new feature over FF2 (aside from the new default UI theme) is the address bar. It’s no longer simply an “address bar,” but has be re-christened the location bar. It searches URLs (including page titles) and bookmarks and… Read More

  • Firefox 3: the good, the bad, and the memory usage

    Mozilla’s Firefox 3 Beta 1 is now available for download if you hadn’t already heard. I took it for a quick spin and found that, on the surface, it’s not a whole lot different than Firefox 2.
