Firefox Update Plugs Security Holes
To download the update, you have a few options: Download and install it manually, or use Firefox's updater tool, by clicking on "Tools" in the menu at the top of the browser window, then "options," then the "Advanced" tab. Scroll down to the section that says "software update" (and make sure there's a check mark next to both "extensions" and "firefox"). Then hit the button that says "check now" and it should find the update for you.
Alternatively, if you see a little red arrow in the upper right hand corner of your screen, click on that and it will prompt you to download the update.
I give Firefox high marks for fixing these flaws so quickly, but this update caused at least one of my extensions -- "Forecastfox" -- to stop working. No big deal, though, I'll live. Updated extensions are usually available within a few days of a Firefox upgrade, so keep an eye out for that little red arrow to show up again soon after you update if you have extensions installed.
