Firefox 3.6 Is Out…. Get Your Copy Now [UPDATED]

Apparently the rumors were true. Firefox 3.6 is out and you can download it from here. The Mozilla blog has all the details of what’s new in this version of Firefox, but here’s the highlights:

  • Personas: Personalize the look of your Firefox by selecting new themes called Personas in a single click and without a restart
  • Plugin Updater: To keep you safe from potential security vulnerabilities, Firefox will now detect out of date plugins
  • Stability improvements: Firefox 3.6 significantly decreased crashes caused by third party software – all without sacrificing our extensibility in any way
  • Form Complete: When filling out an online form, Firefox suggests information for fields based on your common answers in similar field
  • Performance: Improved JavaScript performance, overall browser responsiveness, and startup time
  • Open Video and Audio: With the world’s best implementation of HTML 5 audio and video support, now video can be displayed full screen and supports poster frames

All of this sounds really cool. I’m downloading it now and will be test driving it shortly. As soon as I have some feedback, I’ll post it here.

UPDATE: Firefox 3.6 seems a lot faster. I can’t comment on anything else yet. But the speed increase is well worth it.

  1. So I installed FireFox3.6… the first browser crash came approximately 10 minutes later. This was followed by repeated crashes at 5-10 minute intervals until the afternoon when I finally lost my patience and reverted to 3.0.

    Disappointing…

  2. Hi

    I have been using firefox 3.6 for a week, so far with no problems and it does seem to be quicker than 3.5. All my add ons and plug ins work. Well satisfied.

  3. I loaded firefox 3.6 on a new Windows 7 and upgraded to it on my Vista laptop. Neither of which is working right. The pages are not loading fully or reading css properly. How can I fix this. I am so frustrated with it I’ve had to resort to using MS explorer. If I can figure out how on the Vista I will go back to the older version. But would really rather find the solution to why it’s not working.
