Thanks Mike and others for digging in to the security fixes and changes in the recent Firefox 16 and Thunderbird 16 updates (earlier this week).  Find these details here:


.. And thanks to our reader Paul, who let us know that this latest update has been pulled (if you download the lastest version right now, it's 15.0.1).  It seems that a critical security vulnerability slipped past in 16.0.  (version 15.0.1 is not affected).  Good on the Firefox / Mozilla teams for pulling it so quickly, and posting on it immediately.   More info here:

Final Update (we hope):

Another reader has just let us know that 16.01 has just been posted - this should get us all back on track!  Happy updating everyone!  The two original links (above) have the security-specific info for version 16.01
