Firefox gets another update

Didn't I just post about Firefox getting updated?  Well, I'm not complaining, good for Mozilla. 

Looks like a memory corruption bug that was introduced in 3.0.9.  In particular the users of HTML Validator (a Firefox add-on), and upon further review of the situation, Mozilla found the mem corruption bug.  Unfortunately (as far as I can tell) there is no button in Firefox that says "Go check for updates..  right now!"  at least on the OSX version.

Anyway, here's the security announcement from Mozilla.  Time to update, again.
