Quote:
The German government has warned its citizenry against the use of the Firefox browser due to security issues.

The warning from the Federal Office for Information Security is an echo of a similar pronouncement it made against Internet Explorer in January.

The office warned that the Firefox vulnerability, confirmed by Firefox makers, could allow hackers to run malicious programs on users' computers.

A version of Firefox to be released at the end of the month will fix the bug.

A "beta" or test version of that release, Firefox 3.6.2, is already available but has not yet been fully tested.

Wonderful. Rolling Eyes

3.6 is exactly what I'm using, right now. Thanks Roy!

Thanks. I just upgraded my desktop and my laptop to FF 3.6 over the weekend. Sad

I guess it's Google Chrome for me until the fix comes in.

Still using Firefox 3.0.1 here.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Break it first!
If I feel like upgrading it, I tend to wait at least until all the plugins and the theme I'm using are updated for the new version too. I get too used to working with them Smile

Meh. It can't be worse than a couple months ago when both Germany and Switzerland warned against the use of IE altogether. I think the total number of IE users jumping ship was two.

This post written using Opera. Very Happy

I stopped using Internet Exploder when I heard that Conficker had returned. Then I switch to Firefox and recently I kicked it to the curve and now making sweet love with Google Chrome.

Those who like Chrome might want to try Iron. It's Chrome minus the Google spyware, plus an ad-blocker.
Plus new versions of WebKit (especially security updates) tend to be included faster in Iron.

(Forgive the homepage's bad English, the guys behind it are from Germany.)

^^I will try it but if I don't like it I'm back to getting intimate with Chrome.

@Bankster
Hmm, interesting Smile
It's mostly me not liking the idea of Google peeking over my shoulder every time I wander the Net that's discouraged me from trying out Chrome as a serious alternative to my tweaked-up Firefox.
Might check this one out though. Thanks for that Very Happy

Sometimes you have to walk on the line to live life.

Hackers smackers. I look at danger and laugh my head off.

I don't like how the tabs works in the new FF version. The new tab goes second instead of last.

This info is already obsolete. Mozilla released an update that fixes the security holes.

Just download the 3.6.2 update (or the whole thing) and you're good (click Help - Check for updates).

I´m having 3.0.8. So can I take my tinfoil hat off now?

This is all ideal to confirm my prejudice against "upgraderitis". Smile

By a strange coincidence I was just about to install Firefox when I came across this thread.
I´m a tech idiot, so I´d appreciate a confirmation the coast is clear.
Thanks!

Coast is clear as long as you get the latest 3.6.2 version.
