  1. Mozilla doesn't just want users to have the most current version of Firefox installed, it also is launching a new feature to warn users of outdated and possibly insecure plug-ins. Beginning with an update tomorrow, Firefox 3.5.3 and 3.0.14 will both automatically check which version of Flash users are running and, if needed, prompt them via the "What's New" landing page to visit a link where an updated version is available.

    They have already started. We have seen warnings on three machines this morning.

    This is why I absolutely love Mozilla over everything else.
