Firefox 3.0.6 has been released, fixing several vulnerabilities in the open source browser. Version 3.0.6 fixes six bugs, one of which is an issue related to JavaScript that affects the browsers layout engine. The update fixes a critical vulnerability, also found in Mozilla's Thunderbird e-mail client and the SeaMonkey Internet Suite, which can allow an attacker to gain access to exploited machines.

The update improves stability and improves scripting commands, including those found in popular extensions like Adblock Plus. For privacy, the client user ID has now been removed from the crash reports.

Firefox 3.0.6 is available to download, or Firefox users can use the Firefox update service by selecting Help, then Check For Updates.
