Firefox Update: 2.0.0.5

Firefox has a update which corrects known security issues:

“An issue with the firefoxurl URI handler has been corrected by the Mozilla Foundation, which began pushing out a patched version of Firefox 2 to its users.

The dialog screen advising a new version of Firefox is available should be popping up on computer screens everywhere. Firefox users should proceed with this update as soon as possible. “

One thing that will be noticed on this release is that there will be some indication of which extensions are not compatible with the new version. The extensions / add-ons most likely will catch up and be revised in the next couple of days. You need to weigh the security issues against missing those extensions for a short time. My vote would be to update and to not delay…
