firefox security upgrade

A Firefox upgrade v1.0.1 is now available for download containing a fix for the previously mentioned spoofing vulnerability, other security fixes and some changes to make the browser more stable are in there as well, which is sweet (see El Reg for more info).

A bit annoying is the fact you can’t just slap it over your previous installation, but are advised to install in a separate folder. Fortunately all your settings are copied automatically, and plugins like Flash can be reinstalled through the browsers plugin installer in a few clicks nowadays.

More upgrade goodness with Trillian upgrading to v3.1 today. Yay!
Some new features are added, together with some bugfixes and performance improvements. I haven’t noticed anything in particular yet, but I’ll just take their word for it anyway and feel all warm and tingly because it’s using my computing resources more efficiently now… whoohoo!

Yes, I’m a geek, I know.
