After several delays Mozilla surprised us today and released Firefox 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124! You likely will not be presented with an update offer or via the Help >> Check for updates option until tomorrow. If you want to upgrade now, follow the links below to get Firefox directly from the download sites. Also see below for release notes. Thunderbird 126.96.36.199 has NOT been released yet, should know more about TB after next Monday’s Mozilla Weekly Update meeting.
Fx 1.5.0.X Users: Be advised support for these builds is ending in about 2 months (April 24th). Also, in the next 2-3 weeks you may be offered the Major Update to take you from 188.8.131.52 directly to the 184.108.40.206 build.
Windows Vista Users: Firefox 220.127.116.11 offers improved Vista support by fixing these bugs:
- Automatic Updates now works with users who have limited account privilege and User Account Control (UAC) enabled.
- Uses the Vista Default Application API which means Firefox should now be able to set itself as the default browser without having to be run as an administrator.
- Before Firefox would remain elevated (a.k.a. running as an administrator) after an update was performed, but that has been fixed.
