There are now security issues for both just like with IE.
There are updates to deal with these issues.

Btw, updates, especially security updates are always on the original web site...  ;)

Hey, many thanks. Always keen to stay abreast of security issues.

Your welcome. Those of us using IE are used to patches.... ;D

Indeed.
It is disappointing to find out that the Firefox/Thunderbird sites which Firefox automatically puts on its "Bookmarks Toolbar Folder" (pointing to http://texturizer.net) aren't up to date with regards to patches. I'll be monitoring the mozilla.org site in future.

Thanks again for the heads-up.

BTW. Great forum, populated by insomniacs (it's 3:45AM here now!)

Yes, but here in Toronto, Canada it's very young evening... 10:51 PM ...   ;D

I'm going to sleep around 1:30 AM, as usual... have some clients online... have to fix some problems remotely...

EDIT: You're right about Mozilla web site... they are still in shock (most likely), hehe... not used to deal with sudden fixes, patches, updates... they should ask IE guys (Microsoft) for some advices now...  :P

Hey-
I read that you should uninstalll them instead of just updating.
Just save "D+S\Application Data\"Mozilla+Thunderbird folders and put them back after install.

Not necessary... when you download full versions of let's say Mozilla 1.7.1 and Thunderbird 0.7.2, it will warn you while you're installing them that installation will erase all personal files, everything in order to install new version. At that point you should be aware that you have to save your personal Mozilla/Thunderbird/Firefoxfiles somewhere else, and then do with them whatever you want latter...

Cheers !

Huh  ???

AFAICS, Thunderbird / Firefox are only at 0.7.1 / 0.9.1 respectively

Where are  you looking?


I go to Mozilla.org for Mozilla programs.  Think both updated items have been out for 2-3 days now, or around that.  :)  They released 0.7.2/0.9.2 due to a bug or two.
