Firefox to introduce a regular patching cycle and a mega-patch
Firefox patched 24 vulnerabilities last week, 11 of which are "critical" (meaning your computer can be infected with no user interaction required), 4 are "high," 2 are "moderate" and 1 is "low."
In what some are calling a 'catch up' with Microsoft's "Patch Tuesday", Firefox have announced that they will introduce a regular patching cycle. How regular? Apparently every six to eight weeks.
I strongly recommend you update to version 1.5 of Firefox, not only for security reasons but also because it addresses another bugbear of mine - Firefox have *finally* introduced an automatic update mechanism meaning that users are no longer left in the dark about critical updates. I never considered it acceptable that Firefox users had to make the effort to regularly visit the Firefox site and search for security updates.
