Firefox 3.5 Support Still Going

Back in January we reported, Mozilla had (and still does) indicated on the Firefox 3.5 download page “Firefox 3.5.x will be maintained with security and stability updates until August 2010.” At that time we were speculating that Firefox 3.7 (now 4.0) would be released by August 2010.

Then the customer told me they tried to load their site at their local library and with Internet Explorer with the same results. I took a look at the site on the computer we have that is not connected to our internal…
