A new version of Mozilla's flagship web browser has become available for download. Mozilla says Firefox 18.104.22.168 introduces several security and stability fixes, which are all listed here. The list includes fixes for three critical security holes related to the browser history, privilege escalation, and crashing with memory corruption. There's also a fix for one "high-impact" security flaw affecting some browser add-ons, as well as fixes for three "moderate" holes and three low-impact issues.
Firefox 22.214.171.124 can be nabbed for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux from Mozilla's Get Firefox page. Users who already have a previous version of the browser installed can also go in the browser's "Help" menu and select "Check for updates..." to run the integrated software update tool.
In other Firefox-related news, a third beta release of Firefox 3 is scheduled to come out early next week. Mozilla says to expect Beta 3 to show up on February 12 in the evening, Pacific time. Obviously that beta will still be preliminary, but Mozilla says a release candidate is already in the works, so the complete version of Firefox 3.0 should be out before too long.
