Asa Dotzler Recommends Opera for Firefox 3.6 Users Who Don’t Want to Upgrade

Monday, March 26th, 2012

Wow. This is kind of unusual; a spokesperson for Mozilla is recommending an alternative for Firefox 3.6 users who aren’t interested in upgrading …

If you are a Firefox 3.6 user you know by now that support for that branch of the web browser will end on April 24, 2012.  As it stands now, Firefox 3.6.28, released on March 14, is likely the last version of Firefox 3.6. Mozilla will not update the version of the browser again unless a major security or stability issue forces them to.


Firefox 3.6 Support to End on April 24, 2012

Friday, January 6th, 2012

This could be good news or it could be bad news … I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how Firefox 10 shapes up.

We all knew that the day would come eventually when Mozilla would pull the plug on Firefox 3.6. According to new information posted on the Firefox Extended Support page, that day will be April 24, 2012. This is directly connected to the announcement that Firefox 10 will be the company’s first Extended Support Release (ESR).


Firefox 3.6.15 Released

Friday, March 4th, 2011

At this rate, Firefox is sure to reach it’s goal of being at v.11 by the end of next year …

In a somewhat surprising move, Mozilla has just released a new version of the Firefox web browser. Surprising because the last release dates just two days back (see Mozilla Thunderbird 3.1.8, Firefox 3.6.14, 3.5.17 Updates Released). A new release shortly after a new version is usually indication of a security issue or a critical bug that needed fixing immediately.


Firefox 3.6.10 Is Out, Update Now

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

Man, it seems like every browser platform on the market is coming out with an update this week!

A short period between updates often indicates a pressing matter that needed to be addressed as quickly as possible. For web browsers, it usually means either a security or stability update that fixes a problem that at least a percentage of users are experiencing.

In this case, Firefox 3.6.10 fixes a single highly critical stability issue in Firefox 3.6.9 that is causing crashes for a group of Firefox users.
