Firefox version 2.0.0.11 was released by Mozilla on Friday, the third in the month of November. It fixes a stability problem in the previous version, and all Firefox users are "strongly recommended" to upgrade to this latest release.

This latest update of the open-source Web browser comes hot on the heels of version 2.0.0.8, released on October 18, version 2.0.0.9 on November 1, and version 2.0.0.10 on November 26. So, if you're a Firefox user, you are certainly not alone in getting lots of software update messages from your Web browser recently.

According to CNET News.com:

Version 2.0.0.10 broke a feature that lets images be displayed with special effects such as rotated pictures and image reflections, according to Mozilla's bug-tracking site. The problem was fixed within a day and distributed within five, but not before some whose sites were affected by the bug had voiced frustration.

In the meantime, you might be interested to know that the next version of the browser, Firefox 3, should reach second beta in the latter part of December if all goes well.

I appreciate them staying on top of things, but I was rather annoyed with all of the updates. However, I do understand the importance of fixing the discovered issues. I have since gotten over my brief frustration. (And no this was not an underwear joke :)

Updates from this vendor are painless and present only a minor hiccup to my day. Unlike some other vendor's updates (critical or not) that take a longish time to get, download, install and test first, then repeat and then fix everything that's now broken. I really appreciate the thoughtful updates and that they stay on top of the vast majority of known problems without my having to temporarily put the application on a moratorium.
