Update: It looks like Mozilla updated their information so I am updating it here.
Mozilla has released version 3.0.7 of Firefox. This release fixes several issues found in the previous version. These fixes include several security issues, 3 Critical.. 2 High.. 1 High.. and 1 Low. The most critical item fixed is the problem of a crash causing memory corruption. This is a stability bug and there is concern that with effort on the bad guys part these crashes could be used to run arbitrary code. This issue applies too Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey products.
