Somewhat late, here are some short takes from last week:
- Adobe Shockwave. A new version of this plugin is available for download now from Adobe’s web site.
- QuickTime vulnerability. A security vulnerability initially discovered in Safari affects Firefox and Internet Explorer on Windows as well. Very little detail has been provided but it seems to be related on some QuickTime interaction with Java applets. Current recommended workaround (sort of) is to disable Java: Tools menu/Options…/Content page/Uncheck Enable Java.
- Firefox pencils. JustZisGuy noticed a shortage of pencils at work and he saw an opportunity to spread Firefox. So he ordered a lot of them and coworker are grabbing them as you read this. Also, if you need more evidence that Firefox rocks, check this post.
- Laugh out. Mozilla Corporation’s Seth Bindernagel and Seth Spitzer were in Japan recently and recorded a funny video to promote Firefox. I have no idea of what they’re saying but you should give it a look.
