Firefox 3.6 Will Be Automatically Updated, After All

Filed under
Moz/FF

There are still Firefox users out there that are using the Firefox 3.6 branch of the browser. Motivation to do so differs, from disliking the design and interface of newer versions of the browser to using add-ons that are not compatible with never versions of Firefox. And then there are users who have turned updates off, or not enough privileges to run the updates. With Firefox 3.6 reaching its end of life this month, Mozilla and Firefox 3.6 users are in a predicament.While there are currently no known security vulnerabilities for version 3.6 of the browser, Mozilla fears that criminals will exploit the end of support to attack Firefox 3.6 users on the Internet.

Hitslink sees the browser’s 3.6 branch’s market share at around 2.6% of all Internet users, with another 0.75% running previous versions of Firefox 3.
