If you have Firefox installed, it should push out 1.5.0.5 automatically when you start the browser in order to secure the issue. My home machine updated last night and my work PC did so this morning the first time I opened it up.

I guess I'll just have to switch back to Netscape Communicator 4.77 ... That browser never gave me any problems back in the day, dagnabbit!

This kind of thing will happen to any browser*. The best that we can say is that at least Firefox seems to be fixing their problems quickly.
Secunia reports, for example, that 21 of 105 vulnerabilities in IE6 remain unpatched, including one rated "Highly Critical" (lvl 4 out of 5).
With Firefox 1.x, 3 of 34 vulnerabilities are unpatched, with the highest being rated "Less Critical" (lvl 2 out of 5).

*Yes, I know that Secunia says that Opera 8.x has 0 of 15 vulnerabilities unpatched. But it's likely similar to the same reason that the Mac OS doesn't get viruses.



In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.

I get more use out of Seamonkey than Firefox. Anyone else?

OpenOffice is great. Microsoft has 60 day versions of all the different MS Office Bundles. http://us1.trymicrosoftoffice.com/default.aspx
