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 18.104.22.168.
- Fix for a issue on Linux where Firefox always started in "Offline" mode.

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.
