Mozilla Releases Firefox 2.0.0.5

Firefox is a little bit more secure in new 2.0.0.5 version

Mozilla has released yet another incremental update for its Firefox 2.0 web browser. Important security fixes in the new Firefox 2.0.0.5 are: remote code execution by launching Firefox from Internet Explorer, more crashes with evidence of memory corruption, unauthorized access to wyciwyg:// documents, privilege escallation using an event handler attached to an element not in the document, among others.

The last time the Firefox was updated was late May when 2.0.0.4 was released to address issues with XUL popup spoofing, path abuse in cookies, crashes with evidence of memory corruption and a number of other security-related concerns.

Firefox users can download 2.0.0.5 from Mozilla's homepage or use the auto update function within the browser. For those who like to live on the bleeding edge of browser software, the sixth alpha release of Firefox 3 is now available.

Firefox has slowly but surely been gaining more acceptance among all Internet users. A recent report found that Firefox usage in Europe is nearing 28 percent, with some countries posting 47.9 percent adoption for the Mozilla browser.
