Even Great Browsers Need Updating
Mozilla recently released 2 new updates for Firefox, 184.108.40.206 and 3.0.5.
Wordout recommends that if you regularly use Firefox, you should go ahead and get the upgrade to the ‘3’ version. The reason is simple – phishing protection will only be available for the ‘3’ version in the future.
From the Mozilla site:
Mozilla is not planning any further security & stability updates for Firefox 2, and recommends that you upgrade to Firefox 3 as soon as possible. It’s free, and your settings and bookmarks will be preserved.
Also, the Phishing Protection service will no longer be available for Firefox 2 users. Firefox 3 offers a free Phishing and Malware Protection service, which will continue to protect you from online scams and attacks.
If you already have Firefox 3 or Firefox 2, you will receive an automated update notification within 24 to 48 hours. This update can also be applied manually by selecting “Check for Updates…” from the Help menu.
You can pick up the latest version by clicking HERE. After the installation, Firefox will check for and update your add-ons. The procedure is painless and quick, so go do it now.
I am Jon, and I use Firefox 3.
