This is fairly close to my actual location:

http://sendstudio.ip-adress.com/link.php?M=59811&N=57&L=2&F=H

Where are you located ???
http://www.ip-adress.com/
I guess it would not detect mine recently, because Iran has started 2 new data-center and Iranian users/clients don't connect to internet with their own IP anymore...

Iran is using these data-centers to have a more strong content filtering and all Iranian connect to internet with same IP!! what we have inside Iran is intranet connect to Iran data-center and then access to internet...

it's not matter and is good in some reason!! for example it's good because it would be more diffuclt for hackers to find my real IP and it's bad sometimes because it cause some problem during download files from free servers such as RapidShare because it detect all Iranian clients as a user and says you are currently downloading a file and without premium account we cannot download from that server.

From release notes on Firefox 3.5.2.
Quote
Mozilla add-on developer and community member Wladimir Palant reported broken functionality on pages that had a Link: HTTP header when an add-on was installed which implemented a Content Policy in JavaScript, such as AdBlock Plus or NoScript. Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 demonstrated that the broken functionality was due to the window's global object receiving an incorrect security wrapper and that this issue could be used to execute arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges.
I find this is an interesting case since some Firefox addons which normally considered as security enhancements can do the exact opposite.   :'(

Indeed.  At least it's fixed in Fx 3.5.2.

By the way, Secunia has listed a Highly Critical unpatched vulnerability in the latest version of Fx3.0.x, i.e. Fx 3.0.13.  http://secunia.com/advisories/36088/
Might be a good idea for users that haven't updated to Fx 3.5.2 to do that now.

If one does not use firefox, is one at risk if one does not update?

I don't use Firefox so I don't worry.
