Firefox 3.5.3 and Firefox 3.0.14 forthcoming release will be on September 8. These versions of the open-source web browser will fix the flaws and vulnerabilities of the out-of-date plug-ins from Apple, Microsoft, Adobe, and Sun Microsystem.
Firefox 3.5.3 and Firefox 3.0.14 will patch crashes, security risk, and other stability problems caused by older versions of Firefox. Once Firefox is updated, it doesn’t mean no more crashes or stability problem will occur on Firefox. Thus, Mozilla Security team suggested that users will also update Firefox plugins which are also causing instability of the browser. The Mozilla Security team focuses on updating first the out of date Adobe Flash Player as they quoted Adobe Flash as most popular and because studies have also shown that 80% of users currently have an outdated version of Adobe Flash Player.
Firefox 3.5.3 and 3.0.14 download will be available at Mozilla Firefox website. Once the new version is installed, users with an out of date version of the Adobe Flash Player will keep seeing this notification:
The latest version of Adobe Flash Player can be downloaded from the Adobe website.
