    As it marked the 75 millionth download of its Firefox Web browser, the Mozilla Foundation said it was expanding in several directions. The foundation's open-source e-mail reader, Thunderbird, is approaching its 10 millionth download. Mozilla's browser for small devices, Minimo, reached a milestone, as a prerelease version appeared with tabs, a bookmark manager and RSS feeds. The Mozilla staff itself has quadrupled during the past six months, to 40 employees. "We're beefing up the management on the project," said Chris Hofmann, whose title at Mozilla is in flux since the foundation hired another director of engineering. "The project is still...

    Mozilla has rolled out a security update for its eponymous Internet software suite. Details of the changes in Mozilla 1.7.10 have yet to be given in the release notes, although it is worth noting that this release is the successor to 1.7.9 and not to be confused with 1.7.1. The updated version can be downloaded from The update follows the pattern for the full Mozilla suite, of maintenance and security updates but no further application development. Instead the Mozilla Organisation is concentrating resources on standalone Firefox browser and Thunderbird email client as well as several other projects. Firefox 1.1...

    The next version of Firefox has been delayed for a few months, the Mozilla Foundation confirmed Thursday. Earlier Mozilla stated on its Web site that the next major release of Firefox, called version 1.1, would be released in July. But on Wednesday, lead Firefox engineer Ben Goodger updated the group's roadmap to indicate that the next major release would now not be until after August. Adding new features to the open-source browser has taken "a bit longer than initially expected", according to Tristan Nitot, the president of Mozilla Europe. The next release will now be called Firefox 1.5 as it...

While the main page is unaffected (it now redirects to the forums), several other pages, including, have been replaced by the message "Simiens Crew ownz u viva os macacos". Unlike Mozilla Europe, Mozilla Japan and Mozilla China, the Korean Mozilla site is not officially affiliated with the Mozilla Foundation. The community-run site offers localised Korean versions of Mozilla applications, Korean user support forums and a Korean translation of MozillaZine.

    A security update for the Firefox open-source browser has been released by the Mozilla Foundation, a move that follows the public disclosure of exploit code for two "extremely critical" vulnerabilities. Mozilla Firefox 1.0.4, released Wednesday, addresses vulnerabilities that surfaced earlier this week. The update includes several security fixes, as well as a fix to DHTML errors that were encountered at some Web sites, according to a posting on Mozilla's Web site. The update is designed to address the two flaws, which when combined could allow malicious attackers to engage in cross-site scripting and remote system access. Although the two vulnerabilities...

    Firefox seems to be heading Internet Explorer's way with security research company Secunia stating on its website that two vulnerabilities found in the popular browser can be exploited to conduct cross-site scripting attacks and compromise a user's system. The Mozilla Foundation is aware of the two potentially critical Firefox security vulnerabilities. They maintain that there are currently no known active exploits of these vulnerabilities though a "proof of concept" has been reported. Mozilla stated that it is aggressively working to provide a more comprehensive solution to these potential vulnerabilities and will provide that solution in a forthcoming security update. Users...

    Multiple vulnerabilities that could allow an attacker to install malicious code or steal personal data have been discovered in the Mozilla Suite and the Firefox open-source browser. Details of the nine flaws were published on Mozilla's security Web site over the weekend. Ian Latter, senior security consultant at Internet security specialist Pure Hacking, said most of the vulnerabilities are based on the way the applications handle JavaScript. "There are some permission issues related to running JavaScript at an escalated privilege level. They remove some of the security measures used to keep JavaScript sandboxed and allow it to potentially do malicious...

    As Mozilla and Microsoft executives argue about which browser -- Firefox or Internet Explorer -- is more secure, fans of the former have numbers on their side, a Belgian security consultancy said this week. According to Brussels-based ScanIT, users of Microsoft's Internet Explorer (IE) were "unsafe" 98 percent of the time during 2004, while Mozilla users -- which would include those using Mozilla and Firefox -- were "unsafe" only 15 percent of last year. ScanIT determined the unsafe periods by examining the life spans of vulnerabilities in IE, Mozilla, and Opera -- a Norwegian browser that has a nearly...
