The open source Mozilla Foundation has released the third major security update to its Firefox browser this year.

Version 1.0.3 of Firefox fixes a number of Javascript and cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, as well as other flaws in the browser.

Mozilla is encouraging all Firefox users to update their browsers as soon as possible to plug the holes.

Mozilla now claims Firefox has been downloaded 44 million times, and the count is rapidly growing despite the rising number of potential security flaws that are being found in the browser.

The number of bugs being found in Firefox by security researchers is now approaching the same level as those found in Microsoft’s still dominant Internet Explorer.

Firefox 1.0.3 can be downloaded from:
