As part of Mozilla Corporation’s ongoing stability and security update process, Firefox 3.0.5 and Firefox 18.104.22.168 are now available for Windows, Mac, and Linux as free downloads:
- Firefox 3.0.5 is available at http://getfirefox.com/
- Firefox 22.214.171.124 is available at http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/all-older.html
Mozilla is not planning any further security & stability updates for Firefox 2, and recommends that you upgrade to Firefox 3 as soon as possible. It’s free, and your settings and bookmarks will be preserved.
Also, the Phishing Protection service will no longer be available for Firefox 2 users. Firefox 3 offers a free Phishing and Malware Protection service, which will continue to protect you from online scams and attacks.
If you already have Firefox 3 or Firefox 2, you will receive an automated update notification within 24 to 48 hours. This update can also be applied manually by selecting “Check for Updates…” from the Help menu.
