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.
