Firefox 3.0.1 Released, More Secure and Stable
By on July 16th, 2008

The Mozilla team announced the release of Firefox 3.0.1, which contains several security and stability fixes.

The latest release includes the following updates:

  • Fixes for several security and stability issues.
  • Fixes for malware and phishing database not updating on first startup
  • In certain cases, installing Firefox 2 in the same directory in which Firefox 3 has been installed resulted in Firefox 2 being unstable. This issue was fixed as part of Firefox 2.0.0.15.
  • Fix for a issue on Linux where Firefox always started in "Offline" mode.

You can view the complete list of changes here.

Mozilla strongly recommends all Firefox 3 users to upgrade to the new version, they will be pushing a automated update in the next 24 to 48 hours.
