New Firefox update adds security, Vista support
Mountain View (CA) - Mozilla released its third update to Firefox 2.0 this week. Version 188.8.131.52 fixes a couple security problems and helps to optimize Vista support.
Additionally, the update adds more support for Windows Vista. Although version 184.108.40.206 works fairly smoothly with Vista, some functionality was still missing.
For example, Vista users with Firefox as the default browser would still open up Internet Explorer when clicking on a link in AOL Instant Messenger, Word documents, and other applications. The new Firefox update has an option to fix this.
Two main Vista issues that remain even in Firefox 220.127.116.11 are the inability to migrate Internet Explorer 7 cookies and history, and Vista parental controls are still not compatible.
