Firefox 3.5.6 is available now on many download sites. The version should be updated on the Mozilla Firefox site soon. Fixes stability, and security issues. The details would be posted on the Mozilla site, along with the official release.

What? No mentioning of Firefox 3.0.16? I wonder how many, besides me, are still using the old version 3.0 up until now.

LOL... I had thought of mentioning that update too, but then I thought, not many would be using the old version... and would be more interested in the latest version.

Why are you still using the old version of Firefox?

No reason, I'm just too lazy to update and I don't think there's any big difference between 3.0 and 3.5 besides the privacy mode which I don't think I'll be using. Besides, why change to the new version when the old one is perfectly usable? Hey, you may even be shocked to hear that I still use 2.0 up until about April or May this year before changing to 3.0, then a few months afterwards, 3.5 is released and I don't want to have to update again even though it's just as simple as a few clicks.

If I'm not mistaken, the release of Firefox 3.0.x is the same time as Firefox 3.5.x so whenever you mentioned about 3.5.x, there's a good chance 3.0.x is released too.

Well, ahem... its just a matter of downloading and installing the new version... can't be that much of a work .

On more serious note, the new version will be more secure, and will be faster. Firefox 3.6 is going to be even faster than 3.5. Also, some of the extensions might not support the older version 3.0. And why use an older version when a better version is available. But then, its your choice.

I am really excited with the Firefox 3.6 that will be released early next year. It is reported to be a lot faster... has new HTML 5... and also is more secure. Will be a major release... so I am looking forward to it.

Yes, you are right, whenever Firefox releases updates to 3.5.x, updates to 3.0.x are released too... generally. But, I think they may soon stop to release further updates to 3.0.x. I am not sure though... will have to dig up more on that.

BTW bk_7312, we do not permit signatures more than one line... so you will have to change your signature . Its mentioned in the Forum Guidelines too.

That's not a signature... I simply type __________________ (underscore 18 times), then press "Enter" and type whatever I wish to just like in a normal post. That way, I don't violate any rules and at the same time violated a rule, genius isn't it? Anyways, that "fake" signature is just a simple indication or milestone or memorial (or whatever you may want to call it) for my 200th post! Yay!

I just discovered this -- Signatures in disguise, which are quotable.
