    Default Firefox update to v3.6.4

    What’s New in Firefox 3.6.4

    Firefox 3.6.4 provides uninterrupted browsing for Windows and Linux users when there is a crash in the Adobe Flash, Apple Quicktime or Microsoft Silverlight plugins.

    If a plugin crashes or freezes, it will not affect the rest of Firefox. You will be able to reload the page to restart the plugin and try again.

    Firefox 3.6.4 also fixes the following issues found in previous versions of Firefox 3.6:

    * Fixed several security issues.
    * Fixed several stability issues.

    Default Re: Firefox update to v3.6.4

    are u using firefox? i did it for a long time but since 4-5 months i changed my default browser to google chrome. and i will never change back.
    although i like the feature with the plugin-crash. (chrome offers it for a long time. every tab is a single process in task-manager, so when one site crashes due to a bad plugin, the rest is untouched)

    It depends. On some PC's I use Firefox, and on others Chrome depending on a website (especially, if they are secured {https://}). Each of them has a tendency to show some sites incorrectly.
    I use IE only if I have to...

    And before you even had a chance to check if all your Firefox add ons were compatible with 3.6.4, 3.6.6 is HERE

    "Following the release of Firefox 3.6.4 we heard from some users, mainly those using older computers, that they sometimes expect longer periods of non-responsiveness from plugins, especially with games. For these users the default timeout of 10 seconds was too short. To address this, we increased the amount of time Firefox waits for a plugin to respond before terminating it from 10 to 45 seconds. This change has been made in Firefox 3.6.6, which was released today as an automatic update for all users."
