      Keep Firefox Updated


      As Firefox becomes more and more popular, its security problems will get more play. As said before, its not that Firefox is magically safer than IE...its just not as popular. However, the Mozilla group is quite fast usually at issuing updates. To know if an update exists for you, look for the little red arrow icon in the upper right corner of the Firefox window. If it is there, click on it to download the update. Unfortunately, they do not yet issue patches, so you will need to download the entire package and it will re-install over the old one (you will not lose any settings). After installing, just make sure to restart the browser.

      In May 2005, Firefox 1.0.4 was released. 1.0.3 contained bugs. The two nastier vulnerabilities are the Cross Site Scripting which can be used to steal information on you and your online accounts, and remote system access which allows the hackers to potentially take control of your system. The fix was issued very quickly, and its recommended that all Firefox users update their software.

      Great reminder! I use Mozilla Firefox frequently and it is true that one has to be abreast of the issues regarding this internet program. Thanks again!

      Some people take themselves WAY TOO SERIOUSLY, when in actuality, no one else is really taking them as seriously as they think.

      Yes, we definitely have to stay on top of things with all
      these browsers.

      They all have problems, we just have to make sure that
      we stay abreast of the situation, so we don't get caught
      off guard.

      Happy to know the info is useful.

      It's a pleasure to serve my people!

      Stay Blessed!
