Yet another Firefox update

Firefox gets another security patch--leaving the rest of us thankful that at least Mozilla isn't ignoring new holes as they're discovered.

Mozilla has released another security patch for the Firefox browser, available for Windows and Mac. The changes are minor enough so that users probably won't notice any differences, but the holes plugged were potentially serious exploits.

Four notable fixes address memory corruption leading to program crashes, JavaScript hacking, and two attempts to plug spoofing from HTTP referrers and XUL pop-ups. There's not much else to report for this update, but we can almost definitely expect more security patches before Firefox 3 leaves beta sometime this summer.
