Mac and Linux Firefox Update Links

Several readers wrote in to say they were upset that my recent blog entry about the new security fixes for the Firefox Web browser didn't include links to where people can go to download the updated version for Mac or Linux systems.

Here's one comment: Ok guys, if you post a link to a download you have to tell us thats its not for Mac - so now the question is are your instructions for updates in Gates language only? Would appreciate that information as well.

Shame on me for thinking our readers are mostly Windows users. I am extremely gratified to find otherwise.

From now on, we'll post links to patches for each of the major operating systems, or at least link to a page that lets you choose which operating system patch you need -- provided said option is available.

For the record: Here's the latest Firefox for Mac OS X.

And here's the latest Firefox for Linux.

...and the latest Firefox version for Windows.

Keep the feedback coming!

I've been using Firefox for a few months and will not go back to IE

What is Firefox? It is an internet browser.

How does it work? A whole lot better than IE.

That will be all.
