Firefox and Thunderbird Released

Yes, I realize that Mozilla previously released the updated version 2.0 of Firefox. However, many Firefox users are waiting until the "kinks" get worked out or until their favorite extension is compatible. If you have not updated to 2.0, be sure to get this important update to both Firefox and Thunderbird. From the report at

"The Mozilla Foundation released version of both their popular Firefox web browser and Thunderbird email clients today. These versions address some security issues covered in MFSA2006-65, MFSA2006-66 and MFSA2006-67.

If you have not already upgraded to the new Firefox 2.0 web browser, you should be sure to update to Firefox"
By default, Firefox automatically checks for updates. If you have checked the option for Firefox to "Ask me what I want to do", be sure to allow the update.

Note that Firefox 2.0 release is not affected by the flaws corrected in If you use Thunderbird, it is important to get that update as well. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail.
