Nine More Flaws in Firefox

Security researchers have uncovered at least nine new security holes in Mozilla's Firefox Web browser. The good news is that these flaws appear to be fixed in the latest version of Firefox, v1.0.7. To obtain the latest version of Firefox, your best bet is to download the newest version and manually install it.

The relative security of Firefox vis-a-vis other browsers like Microsoft's Internet Explorer has been the subject of fierce debate lately, as seen by this discussion yesterday at Slashdot.

The Firefox v1.0.7 update was released to Firefox users today. The red dot AND their quickee pop-up notifiers alerted me, so I downloaded and installed it.

Clicked install. Unable to open, only given option to install on disk. Why?
