"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."
