Firefox 3.0.4 is ready for action

Posted on in Software

Mozilla has released Firefox 3.0.4 to address several issues with Firefox 3.0.3. This release includes a bunch of security fixes which I've enumerated in the table below.

In addition to the security fixes, the following bugs have been addressed:

  • Fixed an issue where the IME input tool used to enter Japanese, Korean, Chinese and Indic characters was covered by the "Add Bookmark" panel.
  • Fixed an issue where some passwords saved using Firefox 3.0.2 did not work properly.
  • In some cases, Firefox would not properly save proxy settings for protocols other than HTTP.
