"Mozilla is out this week with Firefox 3.5.9 and 3.0.19
updates, fixing multiple security vulnerabilities in the open
source Web browser's two branches, while announcing that the older
of the two branches is being phased out.
"As part of the update, Mozilla also issued new advisories on
problems that also impact Firefox 3.6.2 browser, which it released
last week, in addition to the 3.5.x and 3.0.x browsers.
"With the 3.0.19 update, Mozilla is pledging to end the 3.0.x
branch, which first debuted in June 2008.
""This is the last planned security and stability release for
Firefox 3.0," said Christian Legnitto, Mozilla's new release driver
for security and stability releases. Legnitto joined Mozilla
earlier this month after a previous stint working at Apple, where
he worked on stability and security releases for Mac OS X."
