Firefox 3.5.1 Fixes Critical Security Flaw

Within a short span of release of Mozilla Firefox 3.5.0,the next version 3.5.1 is released .It reduces the startup time of the previous version and corrects the security flaw identified by Mozilla Foundation Security Advisory, a problem with the software's "Just-In-Time" (JIT) compiler used for JavaScript. A crash could result in an exploitable memory corruption problem that could, under certain cases, be exploited by an attacker to run arbitrary code, like malware. Though called an efficient one in using memory usage, still the start time problem is unsolved, affecting occasional internet users, hopefully 3.5.2 will address it.
