Coffee bean counters
Mozilla has released an update to Firefox 3.0 that fixes half a dozen serious security glitches in the web browser.
Mozilla said the bug, which also affects its Thunderbird email client and SeaMonkey internet suite, could allow a wrongdoer to run dodgy code on exploited machines.
The Firefox 3.0.6 update also comes loaded with improved scripted commands, including extensions such as Adblock Plus, to work properly with plug-ins, said Mozilla.
"At this time, we don't have a good estimate for when we'll be done," Mozilla said on 28 January. “Many of the bugs are proving to be tricky and complicated to fully resolve." ®
