Earlier today we were reporting that Mozilla released updates for all its Firefox versions. Mozilla updated the older Firefox 3.5 to fix several stability and security issues, updated Firefox 3.6 to plug numerous security holes and add support for the X-Frame-Options HTTP response header (which will allow site owners to mitigate clickjacking attacks for example) and released the 5th Beta version of Firefox 4 to add support for the HSTS security protocol, support for a new Audio Data API, and to turn on Direct2D Hardware Acceleration (for Windows 7 users).

Mozilla’s web browser isn’t the only one who got updated. Mozilla’s email client has been updated as well. Just like with Firefox, several Thunderbird versions have been updated.


“As part of Mozilla’s ongoing security and stability update process, Thunderbird 3.1.3 and Thunderbird 3.0.7 are now available as free downloads for Windows, Mac, and Linux. As always, we recommend that users keep up to date with the latest stability and support versions of Thunderbird,” announced Mozilla Messaging’s Mark Banner.

Thunderbird 3.1.3 is available for download here. This latest version comes with several fixes for the application’s user interface, several fixes meant to make Thunderbird more stable, and several fixes meant to address security issues. Thunderbird 3.1.3 is accompanied by a grand total of a 14 security advisories. Out of them all, 10 security advisories are rated as critical, the highest severity rating that Mozilla employs. 1 advisory is rated as high, 1 as moderate, and the remaining two as low. Additional details about the security advisories that accompany Thunderbird 3.1.3 are available here.

Thunderbird 3.0.7 is available for download here. This version also comes with several fixes for the application’s user interface, several fixes meant to make Thunderbird more stable, and several fixes meant to address security issues. Details on the 17 security advisories released alongside Thunderbird 3.0.7 are available here.

"We strongly recommend that all Thunderbird users upgrade to these latest releases. If you already have Thunderbird, you will receive an automated update notification within 24 to 48 hours. You can also manually fetch this update by selecting “Check for Updates…” from the Help menu,” added Mark Banner.
