    Firefox 16.0.1

    Yeah Firefox wants to upgrade again. Whatever version I'm running now works fine and I hate to mess with things that are working. And....... when I went to the first new feature (security and stabilization?) to see what it was going to do for me it sent me to the Mozilla Blog.........complete with the warnings and the get me out of here box. OM








    btw Java is looking for an upgrade also

    There was a security vulnerability in the latest release of Firefox, so they pulled it back.

    Java (not Javascript) apparently has some inherent vulnerability that has recently been reported, although I haven't heard that there's an exploit out there for it. Expect the Oracle people to be working late to fix it.

    That's interesting Darryl. When things don't seem to add up- I keep looking.
