Most Ff users will receive automatic notification that an update is available, and may elect to update at that time. There is also an update for its E-mail companion, Thunderbird.

John

You're all very welcome.

As jgweed pointed out, alot of peeps will recieve a notification from Firefox of available updates, but some of you out there will not.

Also its well worth a read of those links Scarlett has supplied for everyone!

Happy safe browsing!

At least Mozilla is patching its star browser ASAP rather than IE's wait eight months then release the update. :thumbsup:

This has been the case since for several years. I can remember, as a matter of fact, that when a major security problem was discovered with the Mozilla suite, the programmers turned it around in less than two days and a patch was provided.
I am constantly amazed and amused by Microsoft's touting "trustworthy computing" while major security problems remain unpatched after six months, not to mention their complete unconcern for users of any of the older versions of their software.
Regards,
John

There is a huge difference between the two.

Firefox (open source) is concerned about the users. Money doesn't come into play, since it is free.
And MS on the other hand is all about the $$$. The almighty bottom line rules thier world.
Nothing wrong with making money and becoming successful, but they should even things out a bit.
If you are going to sell and profit from a product (especially at the level of profits they (he) achieve!),
there should some show of concern!
But I'm sure he (Gates) isn't losing any sleep at night.
