Mozilla Releases Firefox 11.0

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-adjust property 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.

Update Tuesday, 13 March, 22:14 EDT

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.

Update Wednesday, 14 March, 13:35 EDT

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