Hi All,
Yesterday Firefox seemingly died. It wouldn't recognize Google or Yahoo or anything. I ran Ad ware and Spy Bot and found some gremlins but the situation was the same. This morning I noticed that the McAfee site was downloading an update. When I rebooted everything came back to normal. I could get on the internet then I noticed that there is a test for Firefox security problems. I did this test and what does it prove. Am I suppose to download a patch or wait for a new release?

I need help with this. Any info is appreciated.

Yogi :thumbsup: :flowers:

There is no patch; however there should be a new release of FF as soon as this weekend that will patch the security problems. You will need to download the new FF version, uninstall the old one, and then install the new release (your settings will, however, not be lost). Watch the news here at BC to find out when the new release is available.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
