Mozilla rushes Firefox 3.0.8 to address latest security bugs

It turned out Mozilla only needed a couple of days to release the needed fixes for a couple of security vulnerabilities disclosed in the last few days. One uncovered last week during the CanSecWest Pwn2Own contest; the other published a couple of days ago by an Italian hacker.

While Firefox 3.0.8 fixes only these two critical security bugs, another was already on schedule for release on mid-April. I think this release may delay Firefox 3.0.9 release a bit, but should still come out in April.

To update, in the Help menu, select Check For Updates… and follow the onscreen instructions if you are not automatically prompted before that.

    Firefox 3.0.8 keeps crashing on my computer. I can’t even get a single page to load and it crashed also during an extesnion update. A really unstable release, if you ask me…
