Mozilla fixes critical bugs with Firefox 3.5.5
Just over one week after the Firefox 3.5.4 was made available, the Mozilla developers have released version 3.5.5 of their open source Firefox web browser to address two critical bugs. According to Mozilla, the release "is a short-cycle security and sustained engineering release to fix several top crashing bugs". The update fixes critical bugs that would cause the browser to crash on startup and in the GIF decoder, along with fixes three lower priority issues.
More details about the release can be found in the release notes and change log. Firefox 3.5.5 is available to download for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Firefox binaries are released under the Mozilla Firefox End-User Software License Agreement and the source code is released under disjunctive tri-licensing that includes the Mozilla Public Licence, GPLv2 and LGPLv2.1.
