Mozilla Corp. said today that it will take another stab this week at convincing users running older versions of its Firefox browser to update to Version 3.0.
On Thursday, Mozilla plans to offer Firefox 3.0.4, the most-up-to-date edition, to users of Firefox 184.108.40.206, the latest version of the company's 2006 browser. It will be the second so-called major update presented to users since Mozilla launched Firefox 3.0 in June.
Currently, three-fourths of Mozilla users are running Firefox 3.0, according to data released yesterday by Web metrics firm Net Applications Inc. During November, Firefox 2.0 accounted for 4.8% of all browsers used, while the newer Firefox 3.0 held a 15.6% market share.
Mozilla will repeat the original offer, which let users choose between accepting the update, postponing it 24 hours or declining it.
