Mozilla released an update for its Firefox Web browser, addressing several issues, including improving the security of the browser.

According to Mozilla, five security fixes were completed in Firefox 3.0.7. URL spoofing with invisible control characters, XML data theft via RDFXMLDataSource and cross-domain redirect and Crashes with evidence of memory corruption are among the security fixes in the new version.

A bug that caused items in the File menu to be inactive after using Print has been fixed. Another bug that caused cookies to appear to be missing after a couple of days has also been fixed. Users of the Flashblock add-on that experienced an issue where sound from the Flash plug-in would continue to play for a short time after closing a tab or window will be happy to hear that problem has been fixed as well.

Mozilla said that several other stability and accessibility issues were also addressed.

Firefox 3.0.7 is available for download from the Mozilla Web site.
