Do I need to download the latest version?

Posted

I received a notification of a Firefox update. I clicked "restart Firefox" and the following message came -- you're running Firefox 3.5.11and for security reasons we recommend downloading the latest & greatest version. I assumed 3.5.11 is the latest version. Since I'm running it, what am I being asked to download?

Firefox 3.6.7 is the latest stable version of Firefox. That said, you can still use 3.5.11 as normal, if you want, since it is still supported and includes all the latest security fixes. Firefox 3.5.11 and Firefox 3.6.7 are the two versions of Firefox that are supported. If you're using anything bellow that, you need to upgrade. Otherwise, you don't.
