Firefox update

The Infosec industry is really biased when commenting on browsers security issued. Every IE problem causes an avalanche of hatred comments on "MS insecurity". Meanwhile, Firefox has just been update for security issues and almost nobody mentioned it. What was fixed? Was it serious? How long has the issue been known? Hey guys, let's try to face all products with the same critical approach.

The update took me by surprise this weekend. As a security professional, I don't like surprises. MS can took to long to fix a public disclosed vulnerability, but at least they try to keep us informed of their plans and about what they are doing with the software we use.
