MODS: Wasn't sure where this goes please move if necessary




Firefox 31 adds blocking malware downloads and beefs up security.


Firefox Security Advisories page lists 11 advisories that plug a total of 4 critical, 5 high, 4 moderate and 2 low-risk security flaws.
Because critical bugs are remotely exploitable, please upgrade to the latest version ASAP by opening Help menu (press Alt key once if Menu bar is not visible) and clicking About Firefox.

Manual download is also available at: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html.


Mozilla Firefox 31 also introduces blocking malware from downloaded files, sets mozilla::pkix as default certificate verifier and adds search field to new tab page. First two should make using the browser a bit safer.

See Firefox Notes page for more changes and details

I installed it last night.  Seems just fine for me.  However, I did notice something with the release of Thunderbird 31.  I use TB as an RSS reader, and have for some time.  However after installing TB, a few of the RSS titles changed.  For instance it went from:


This RSS feed title




This RSS feed titjjeo11e4i


(notice random characters at end).


I fixed the title and all was well, still get the feeds just fine.  A small glitch.


Have a great day.
