The Mozilla folks have released the long-awaited version of Firefox.  The second link below shows that 7 security issues were fixed.  One rate critical.  Bugs fixed appear to include CVE-2007-1004, CVE-2007-0995, CVE-2007-0981, CVE-2007-0800, CVE-2007-0780, CVE-2007-0779, CVE-2007-0778, CVE-2007-0777, CVE-2007-0776, CVE-2007-0775, CVE-2007-0008, and CVE-2007-0009, among others.  This also fixed the issue with the password manager that was exploited late last year, CVE-2006-6077.  The bookmarklet vulnerability CVE-2007-1084 does NOT appear to have been addressed.
