The folks at Mozilla have released a new major version, 11.0, of their Firefox browser for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. The new version includes a few new features, including:
- Bookmarks, cookies, and history can now be imported from Google Chrome
- HTML 5 support is improved
- Add-ons can now be synchronized across devices with Sync
- The CSS
text-size-adjustproperty is now supported
More detailed information is available in the Release Notes.
You can obtain the new version via the built-in update mechanism (Help / About Firefox / Check for Updates), or you can download a complete installation package, in a variety of (human) languages.
The new version probably also fixes some security vulnerabilities; however, Mozilla has not yet posted any information on this. The information should be posted here before long.

The list of vulnerabilities fixed in version 11.0 has now been posted; there are eight in all, five of which are rated Critical by Mozilla. I recommend updating to the new version as soon as you conveniently can.

Ars Technica has an article describing the new release, including some new tools for Web developers: the Style Editor, and DOM Viewer.
