Firefox 3.5.5 Update Released

The Mozilla Foundation has released another update for its browser, mainly Firefox 3.5.5. The update follows in the footsteps of Firefox 3.5.4, an update that was released about a week back. Firefox 3.5.5 does not bring any features to the table, nor does it fix any critical security vulnerabilities like v. 3.5.4 did. It only fixes several stability updates.

"As part of Mozilla's ongoing stability and security update process, Firefox 3.5.5 is now available for Windows, Mac, and Linux as a free download. We strongly recommend that all Firefox users upgrade to this latest release. If you already have Firefox 3.5, 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,” announced Firefox Launch Coordinator, Samuel Sidler

There really isn’t much else to say about Firefox 3.5.5. You are well advised to get the update as soon as possible, just like Samuel Sidler said. The next update, Firefox 3.5.6 is scheduled to be released on the 15th of December.

In related news, the Mozilla Foundation has just recently released the first Beta version of Firefox 3.6. If you’re a Firefox fan that doesn’t mind using a software application that might prove to be a bit buggy, then go ahead and download Firefox 3.6 Beta 1. It comes with the following enhancements and features:

- Built-in support for Personas
- Built-in support for dragging and dropping files from the desktop into Firefox.
- The user will be alerted when a plugin needs to be updated.
- Full screen and poster frames support for open, native video.
- WOFF font format support.
- The performance of the JavaScript engine has been improved.
- New CSS, DOM and HTML5 web technologies support.
- Multiple background images support.

Again, Firefox 3.6 Beta 1can prove to be buggy. Do not download it unless you know what you’re doing.

If you would like to get Firefox 3.5.5, a download location is available here.
If you would like to get Firefox 3.6 Beta 1, a download location is available here.


And don’t forget that Firefox will celebrate its 5th anniversary on the 9th of November, so Light the World with Firefox.
