Firefox has issued an update for its browser across all platforms to improve security and stability.

You can download the update from Mozilla’s Get Firefox site.

Firefox 1.5 users can wait for the automated update that will be released within the next 24-48 hours if they so choose.

From Mozilla: For more information, please see: Firefox Release Notes.

I’m curious as to why the WASP announces the smallest Firefox updates when they are released, yet when Opera 9 was officially released there was not a single post about it.

Nothing against Firefox, but it seems a little odd.

What’s this got to do with Web Standards?

I think the automated update is already released since I’ve gotten mine 1-2 days ago.

It’s odd alright, especially considering that since Firefox 1.5, the automatic update actually works and updates the browser without you having to do anything. Are you guys going to announce the release of Firefox today? :)

Fyrd and Peter, I think this announcement was made due to the high usage of Firefox. It is the second most used browser behind IE, all others probably being negligible from a practical viewpoint. The surge in Firefox usage is significant from a standards viewpoint, so its updates and usage increases are relevant things to report here. The more standards-compliant browsers, the better. But not everyone interested necessarily uses it (I don’t but I’m still glad MS is being challenged).

The true answer is that Mozilla sends us regular press updates and I happened to be available to blog that news on that day.
