A new Firefox update was released this afternoon that fixes some pretty serious security issues.

MFSA 2007-25
XPCNativeWrapper pollution

MFSA 2007-24
Unauthorized access to wyciwyg:// documents

MFSA 2007-23
Remote code execution by launching Firefox from Internet Explorer

MFSA 2007-22
File type confusion due to %00 in name

MFSA 2007-21
Privilege escalation using an event handler attached to an element not in the document

MFSA 2007-20
Frame spoofing while window is loading

MFSA 2007-19
XSS using addEventListener and setTimeout

MFSA 2007-18

No matter how bad they were they are fixed now and I have to admit it would take a lot for me to move away from this wonderful browser. Get it now!
