    Firefox 2 end of life

    For those who are using Firefox 2, version 2.0.0.19 is the final release. If there are any security holes discovered in it in the future they will not be fixed. Mozilla recommends users upgrade to Firefox 3. The system requirements for Firefox 3 are different to Firefox 2, those with Windows 98/ME or MAC OS X 10.3.9 or earlier will not be able to upgrade to Firefox 3.

    If you are using Firefox 2.0.0.19 and have a system that supports Firefox 3, you will be offered an upgrade to Firefox 3.0.5 around early-mid January. If you decide not to wait you can download Firefox 3 from http://www.mozilla.com/

    Those who decide to stay with Firefox 2 should also note that the malware protection service used in Firefox 2 has been disabled as the list of malware sites that it uses will no longer be available. The malware protection system in Firefox 3 will still work since it uses a different list.

    It turns out that 2.0.0.19 will not be the last version, there was an issue found in 2.0.0.19, so 2.0.0.20 will be released probably later today to fix it.

    Thanks, Tony. Do you reckon it is OK to jump straight from 2.0.0.18 to 2.0.0.20 or should 2.0.0.19 be applied as well?

    Cheers,

    Chris (Hunt)
