Home Business IT Open Source Three days between Firefox 3 updates
A new version of Firefox 3 has appeared, just three days after the debut of the version it replaces.

Firefox is the popular open-source browser from Mozilla that is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

Version 3.0.2 of Firefox - which corrected five security issues and delivered various other bug fixes and improvements - was released on September 23.

Just three days later, version 3.0.3 appeared. The new version fixes a bug in Firefox's password manager involving character set conversion https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=454708 that could prevent the retrieval of saved passwords and the saving of new passwords.

No other changes are listed for Firefox 3.0.3.

The new version can be obtained here or by using the Check for Update command in Firefox 3.

Firefox 2 is being maintained until mid-December. The current version is still 2.0.17, which was released alongside 3.0.2.
