Mozilla has announced plans to update the Firefox 3.0.x and Firefox 3.5.x branch today earlier this week. The updates are currently distributed to the official mirror server network to be prepared for the increased traffic after the official release announcement. Both releases are security and stability updates and therefor recommended to be installed by Firefox 3.0.x and 3.5.x users immediately after release to protect the browser and computer system from exploits targeting the vulnerabilities.
Only the beta changelogs of both new web browser versions are available at the Mozilla website which usually only list some of the updates of the new releases.
Bugzilla lists three critical, three major and 13 normal bug fixes in Firefox 3.0.18 and nine critical, six major and 48 normal or minor bug fixes in Firefox 3.5.8. Both Firefox 3.5.8. and Firefox 3.0.18 will be offered for download at the Mozilla website and from within the web browser after performing a check for browser updates.
Users who do not want to wait that long can take a look at download portals like Betanews or Major Geeks who usually offer downloads for Firefox updates earlier than they are announced at Mozilla. It might also be a good idea to switch to the recently released Firefox 3.6 instead which is currently the newest official Firefox release.
