Windows 7: Firefox 3.0.9 is publicly available

21 Apr 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
Firefox 3.0.9 is publicly available

After a weekend of stability testing, version 3.0.9 -- the latest security update to the Firefox 3.0 browser series -- can now be downloaded. As usual, Mozilla isn't making the new version's release public for at least another day, so if you select Check for Updates from the Help menu, you won't see the new version just yet, though you can download it from Fileforum and install it manually without problems.

You're welcome, running it now with no problems so far, I wish I could see the changelog though. I guess it'll come out in the next day or so.
