    If you need an MSI one should be out here: Download Firefox MSI soon. They really do need a native MSI and an LTS version as I so can't be stuffed rolling out a new browser every week just so they can move the buttons about and claim they have fixed the memory usage.

    Every time Mozilla releases a version of Firefox, the IE team sends us a cake.


    As the releases have gotten faster and leaner... so have the cakes.

    Meh, I'm going to wait for Firefox 9. Which at this rate, I'm guessing is next week.

    I'm going to be ditching FireFox this week. They seem to be losing it.

    Mozilla haven't updated their website yet. The links above are definitely to the final release.

    I believe a lot more virus's are targeting Firefox now days .

    For the first time in years! i got a virus from a website yesterday with just browsing to the page .

    My nod32 antivirus detected it but somehow it still mucked up everything !

    They are now onto a ludicrous 6 week release schedule. I saw a chart somewhere saying the first LTS release would be 7 or 8, I can't remember. They either need LTS or silent auto-update like chrome.

    Just skip the pointless OMG NEW VERSION and change your update channel to Nightly, I've been on version 10 for weeks now. And I must admit .... I can't see any difference in it from version 5, 6, 7, 8 beta, 9 alpha, and so on....
