Mozilla Firefox 3.6.4 Released

Firefox 3.6.4 has been released today. The most prominent feature for this release is the third-party plugin crash protection.

It used to be that when a plugin crash, say Flash Player, you were left with no choice but to kill the browser.

Now plugins run within their own thread process. So that when a plugin crash, Firefox would just display an image to inform the user that a third-party plugin crashed. And then you can just close the Tab where the plugin was running.

One thing I notice with this release though, is that the Flash Player which rarely crash before now seem to crash more often.

I hope Mozilla release another patch for this problem soon.
