Mozilla has announced a number of fixes for its Firefox browser, warning that four of the flaws are critical.
The advisory also contained two fixes with a 'High' rating, two listed as 'Moderate', and four minor vulnerabilities. Some of the issues are so severe that firms are being urged to automatically, or if necessary, manually update all their users to the newest version of the browser.
Other issues relate to compatibility problems with emerging technologies from rival firms. "Some web pages (such as mlb.com) do not properly detect if Silverlight is installed and will not function properly," the advisory warns.
Mozilla is expected to launch a full, new version of the browser later this week. Firefox 3.0.9 is now available for Windows, Mac, and Linux users as a free download from getfirefox.com.
