Description

New mozilla-firefox packages are available for Slackware 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/mozilla-firefox-3.6.9-i686-1.txz: Upgraded. This fixes some security issues. For more information, see: http://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox36.html ( Security fix )

Where to find the new packages:

HINT: Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com? Give slackware.osuosl.org a try. This is another primary FTP site for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab (http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting to the Slackware project! :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for additional mirror sites near you.
