Mozilla Firefox update fixes several vulnerabilities

Fixes vulnerabilities in Firefox 44 and earlier, and Firefox ESR version 38.6

Open source Web browser, Mozilla Firefox, claimed its latest update has fixed several critical vulnerabilities in Firefox 44 and earlier, and Firefox ESR (Extended Support Release) version 38.6.

The company said one of the vulnerabilities allows attackers to create and send a malicious fire to a user’s computer, allowing the attacker to execute code on that device.

A second vulnerability can be used to crash a computer and give attackers access to the machine during that process.

Firefox said the latest update should be applied as soon as possible and suggested that future updates be automated.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
