Mozilla is pushing out a point release update to its recent Firefox 20 browser build with the recommendation that users install it as soon as possible.
Released overnight on 11 April, the Firefox 20.0.1 build is slated as a security and stability update and carries the message that "It is strongly recommended that you install this update for Firefox as soon as possible".
According to Mozilla's website, the update fixes a number of security issues, including three critical vulnerabilities that could allow an attacker to run code and execute software on an end user's PC.
The update also includes a Windows-only update to address issues with handling Uniform Naming Convention (UNC) paths, and adds the ability to close any hanging plug-ins without the browser itself locking up.
Firefox 20, released at the beginning of April, extended the browser's private browsing to support this on a per-tab basis, along with an updated download manager.
Mozilla also released a preview of the upcoming Firefox 21 on its beta channel last week, which changes the way that Do Not track functions, among other updates.
Earlier this week, Mozilla announced that its chief executive, Gary Kovacs, was to leave the firm after less than three years at the helm.
