Wednesday is the day Mozilla will release the final security update for Firefox 1.5. After that, it will nudge users to make the switch to version 2.0.
“On Wednesday, May 30, we expect to begin distributing Firefox 220.127.116.11 and Firefox 18.104.22.168 via automatic updates. These are standard stability and security updates for the browser to ensure a fast and secure online experience for our users. We expect this is the final stability and security release for the version 1.5 product series. Firefox 22.214.171.124 includes an auto-update mechanism that offers users the ability to migrate to Firefox 2. The upgrade offer will be enabled within in a few weeks. We strongly encourage everyone to download Firefox 2 now at www.getfirefox.com to benefit from features that make search, communication and online security more effective.”
