    10.0.2 on its way!

    BTW, this seems to be an informative page and has a bit on other browsers as well.

    This is getting frustrating as I have to interrupt individually a dozen people at work every time there is an update. They need to find a better way to handle updates.

    Yes, I agree. I have a feeling this whole rapid release thing just isn't working for Mozilla. I think eventually this will lose them users.

    These practically back to back updates to Firefox are getting on my t**s.
    3 already in Feb. (in 18 days !)
    Compare this to Opera, none in Feb. one in Jan.
    FF must be collecting vulnerabilities at a hell of a pace, otherwise why the need for
    all those updates ?

    Ocky, I agree that the fast updates are dizzying, yet there were reasons as to why they happened: 10.0.1 & 10.0.2.

    JRViejo, yes patching is vital but there are really an inordinate number of such
    vulnerabilities. This is certainly not the case with Opera which is my number one browser.
    Unfortunately I need Firefox for certain tasks. I have now removed Seamonkey (brother of FF), because I am sick of updating both of them on 5x Linuxes.

    Ocky, this was actually not a Firefox specific security issue but one in the libpng library which also affected Chrome (and possibly other browsers that use that library).

    I imagine that someone who has to look after Fx, SM and TB on multiple computers would not have enjoyed the last year!

    With Firefox the updates are to close holes. With Opera, it's closed source, so who knows if they're patching.
