A Firefox flaw! Somewhat of a rarity.
ZOMG the end of the world! Here I thought there were such things as perfect applications...
The new firefox has messed up for me a fair bit. One forum I can't post fully, or use quotes ad the text editor just won't work.
yeah I have the minefield 3.7 build installed too.. but I still use 3.6
3.6 seems slower at everything than 3.5.7- it's the saddle pops that need to worry =]
"Are you disappointed to see the Mozilla Foundation taking so long to patch a vulnerability in its browser software,"
You can patch it now if you want, using the nightly build. Even if you don't, a week is much less time than MS take to patch IE.
I'm already using Minefield 3.7a4pre, doubt this concerns me.
opera here so not really an issue (you have to get past UAC as well if opera had an issue)
but at least with internet explorer you know there may be a risk, people using firefox think they are immune( the average person)
Germany warning it's citizens again similar to what it did with IE from bbc
What's the nature of the exploit?
Anyway, the bitdefender news earlier highlights the issues with rushing out poorly-tested code.
okay so for the next couple of weeks I will just switch to my other browser eg Chrome. Until this all passes.
Which version(s) of Firefox are affected by this flaw?
it would be all i guess
So let me get this straight:
It's somehow Mozilla's fault that it's taken a month to fix a bug, when the person that discovered the bug refuses to let them know what the bug exactly *was* for quite some time
"you have a bug!"
mozilla: "omg what is it?"
"omg you haven't fixed the bug!¬"
The public use ones. The nightly builds are safe.
Hilarious! and to think many would have changed to firefox since the browser choice screen a few weeks ago. Now you have Germany telling it's population to switch until it's fixed. France is sure to follow as it always does. UK won't do anything since they would have fixed it before the UK "government" would have planned a response.
So who will benefit from this? Opera? IE? or the many other browsers apparently no one scrolled along to look at? Somebody will because those who recently changed will happily move away as they wont have any loyalty to Firefox.
Guys, update's been released early!
Is that the Beta they talk about above?
My firefox just downloaded 3.6.2
