Earlier this year the German government advised against using Internet Explorer, and yesterday the country's Federal Office for Information Security warned users against using Firefox due to a critical vulnerability. Fortunately, Firefox users have little to worry about as Mozilla has already fixed the flaw in the newly released Firefox 3.6.2.
Firefox 3.6.2 was originally due to launch at the end of March, but is available to download now from the Mozilla website.
The security hole had led the German government to issue a warning about Firefox 3.6.
The Federal Office for Information Security made a similar ruling on the safety of Internet Explorer in January.
