Mozilla Firefox 16 Security Issue
Submitted by John T. Haller on October 10, 2012 - 10:53pm
Mozilla has taken the unusual step of announcing a security vulnerability in Firefox 16.0 and temporarily removing that version from their main download page as well as their automatic updater. We have done the same for Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition 16.0 and 15.0.1 is now the version available on our site and in our app store. An updated release of the local and portable version will be made tomorrow to address the issue. As a precaution, local users can downgrade to 15.0.1 by following these instructions: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/. Portable users can downgrade to 15.0.1 by downloading Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition 15.0.1 and installing it over their 16.0 version (all settings will be preserved, of course). Users can also wait until tomorrow's release for the fix.
