Firefox Upgrade Fixes 9 Security Holes

Mozilla, the maker of the increasingly popular Firefox Web browser, has released a new version (v. 1.0.3) to plug a whole bunch of security flaws found in version 1.0.2 (including three Mozilla deems "critical.")

If you are using Firefox, you should notice a little red arrow in the upper right hand corner of your browser window, which appears whenever there are updates available, either for the browser or for any extension programs you have installed as add-ons to your browser. Click on the red arrow and follow the instructions to upgrade to the newest version.

Once you've done the update, you might notice that the red arrow is still there. I don't know why it does that, but if you just click on it once more it should just give you a message saying something like "there are no updates available," and after that the arrow should be gone.
