Firefox released a security update on 16th July 2008. This is the first update ever released for Firefox 3 thus it has caused some problems with the add-on’s. This updated version is known as Firefox 3.0.1 and includes some security fixes for Firefox 3 but when the developers were rushing for writing the plugin’s for Firefox 3, some of them missed out the star (*) in the sub-version field. Instead they wrote 3.0.0 or simply 3.0 which is causing this add-on’s incompatibility.
You can detect which of your add-on’s will stop working before installing the update. Follow the simple steps below:
Mozilla’s team is currently contacting the developers and asking them to please release update for their plugin’s which fixes this problem. This update also fixes several stability issues but getting this update can make some of your good features of Firefox provided by the extensions being disabled. So you have to chose weather to update and fix stability and security issues with Firefox 3.0 or continue till your add-on’s are fixed.
