Firefox and a Dozen Patches

September 25, 2008 at 6:11 pm Leave a comment

If you just use Firefox as a secondary browser (I use more than one for various reasons, basically not pertinent)…it’s time to fire ‘er up.  A dozen patches were released this week.  Unless you have the auto-update disabled, which is as I’ve mentioned (and shall continue to nag) is a very bad idea, if you use it regularly this is just of mild interest.  If you don’t, there’s going to be an interesting period of vulnerability when you know there are exploits out there (even if you don’t go surfing) and it’s downloading.  Hopefully, just the patches.

IE 8 has the same display problem as does Avant right now; Orca (which I’m using to make this post) has the clean display and lightweight CPU and memory usage as does Avant.  To repeat myself.  Firefox seems incredibly slow to start but then does its usual “pretty damn’ graceful for a drunken elephant” act.
