    Updates from Mozilla Foundation

    Over the next few days there will be quite a few security and stability updates from Mozilla.

    Firefox 1.5.0.2 and 1.0.8 are currently being propagated to the download mirrors. If you have Firefox 1.5.0.1 installed, by default it should automatically install the update patch (557kb) over the next couple of days. If you do not want this to happen automatically then change the settings by selecting Tools>Options..., and go to the Advanced>Update tab.

    You can get the full installers for the newest English-US Firefox versions from: (You may get file not found errors as not all mirrors have the files yet)
    Firefox 1.5.0.2 http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/fir....2/win32/en-US/
    Firefox 1.0.8 http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/fir....8/win32/en-US/


    Thunderbird 1.5.0.2 and 1.0.8 and Mozilla Suite 1.7.13 should be released within the next week. Firefox 1.0.8 and Thunderbird 1.0.8 will be the last security/stability releases for these old versions. The Mozilla Foundation recommends upgrading to the 1.5 series.

    The Mozilla Suite 1.7.13 will likewise be the last official security/stability update. You can instead change over to the SeaMonkey Project, a community effort which is based on the Mozilla Suite code. An update for SeaMonkey is also due soon.

    I'm lazy. Is there a link to what is being updated/fixed? (Prays that memory usage in FF gets some attention) <img src=/S/please.gif border=0 alt=please width=31 height=23>

    I guess it has been longer than I thought since the last update. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    1969, I remember that year well. <img src=/S/gramps.gif border=0 alt=gramps width=20 height=20>

    My update was a bit more recent.
