Firefox 2.0.0.6 Only 13 Days After 2.0.0.5

Well it is official Firefox just released version 2.0.0.6 which makes the old version 2.0.0.5 just 13 days old and not needed anymore. The following issues were fixed:

  • MFSA 2007-27 Unescaped URIs passed to external programs
  • MFSA 2007-26 Privilege escalation through chrome-loaded about:blank windows

This brings up the real question which is more annoying Windows Update (the passive update process) or Firefox update (the active update process). Honestly I prefer to stay ignorant about browser updates, because honestly I don't really care about unescaped uris. Not because I don't think they are a threat, but because I know the signs of a potential site that could cause harm and just avoid them.
