FireFox 3.0.11 Released – Fixes Crash and Security Issues

firefox

The last version of FireFox that worked properly on my machines was version 3.0.8. – versions 3.0.9 and 3.0.10, totally sucked.

Both of these versions caused very uneven performance while surfing the Net. I have to admit, this uneven performance drove me slightly crazy. Unexplained crashes, slow site connections, and timed out errors do that to me.

Now comes word that Mozilla has just released FireFox 3.0.11, which addresses these very issues. Once again Mozilla is a dollar short and a day late!

This new release addresses the following stability and security issues.

Issues Fixed in Firefox 3.0.11

MFSA 2009-32 JavaScript chrome privilege escalation

MFSA 2009-31 XUL scripts bypass content-policy checks

MFSA 2009-30 Incorrect principal set for file: resources loaded via location bar

MFSA 2009-29 Arbitrary code execution using event listeners attached to an element whose owner document is null

MFSA 2009-28 Race condition while accessing the private data of a NPObject JS wrapper class object

MFSA 2009-27 SSL tampering via non-200 responses to proxy CONNECT requests

MFSA 2009-26 Arbitrary domain cookie access by local file: resources

MFSA 2009-25 URL spoofing with invalid unicode characters

MFSA 2009-24 Crashes with evidence of memory corruption (rv:1.9.0.11)

If you are running FireFox 3.0.10, I strongly recommend that you update to release 3.0.11.
