Mozilla Firefox 7.0.1 Released to Fix Missing Add-On Problem

The rapid release path for Firefox version updates did not run all that smoothly for Version 7.  After updating to Version 7, there were instances in which users discovered one or more of their add-ons were hidden.  As a result, the release of the new updates to Firefox Version 7 was paused in order to minimize the impact.

An update fixing the issue has been released.  To get the update now, select Help, About Firefox, Check for Updates.

Also available now is the list of vulnerabilities that were fixed in Version 7.
