    I saw an article stating that they're working on an update for it right now (3.6.19), and would at least support it through August. The current version is: 3.6.18.

    I was just wondering if anybody had any additional information about an impending EOL for ver.3. I know that many IT/business men & women are pleading for them to continue to support it longer, as they're risking their jobs jumping in with both feet only to realize essential applications don't play nicely with it yet. My concerns are the same, on a much smaller scale. I hope that they realize the validity of this concern and continue support for 3 at least into early 2012.

    I notice that when I check for updates now it says that none are available, instead of trying to push ver.5 as it always had before. This just changed in the past week.

    3.6.20 has August 16th release date plan: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Releases
    So FF 3 might end up being supported for longer than might have been expected, it seems.
