"Mozilla is updating its Firefox Web browser with new
technology that is targeted at making the open source browser more
stable. The Firefox 3.6.4 release also includes fixes for four
critical security vulnerabilities.
"Firefox 3.6.4 is the first Firefox update in the Lorentz branch
of Firefox development, which adds new features to incremental
point updates of the browser. Typically, point updates in the
Firefox browser do not introduce new functionality, but rather are
built to address bug and security issues. The Firefox 3.6.3 release
came out in April in response to a reported security vulnerability
from the Pwn2own hacking competition.
""Results from our beta testing show Firefox 3.6.4 will
significantly reduce the number of Firefox crashes experienced by
users who are watching online videos or playing games," Mike
Beltzner, Mozilla's director of Firefox, wrote in a blog post.
"When a plug-in crashes or freezes while using Firefox, users can
enjoy uninterrupted browsing by simply refreshing the page."
