Default Get Firefox early

Firefox is out and can be downloaded from various ftp sites. One of those sites is the main Mozilla ftp site so itís as good as official. The announcement should be added to the Firefox homepage today as well which means that it is a wise move to download it now before the storm breaks loose.
The update checker is not updated as well yet. This version fixes the QuickTime Vulnerability which was discovered earlier on and it is recommended that Firefox gets updated as soon as possible. As usual Firefox has been updated for all supported operating systems and all localized versions are available as of now as well.
The vulnerability is based on QuickTime Media Link files (.qtl), simple XML files that include details about the media file to be played (like an .avi, .mov or .mp3) and other settings. However one of these parameters, qtnext, allows the publisher to specify a URL (web address) to be displayed when the media file ends. The URL could be a JavaScript instruction like those used in thousands of web pages and services currently.
