Available via Firefox 3.0's Help -> Check for Updates menu, Firefox 3.0.9 won't blow your socks off with new features like the Firefox 3.1 betas might, but it should help you sleep a little better at night with all the security updates and squashed bugs. Detailed on Mozilla's Security Advisories for Firefox 3.0 page, this updated fixes problems related to JavaScript, malicious search plug-ins that can inject code into sites, and crashes related to memory corruption.

Firefox 3.0.9 weighs 17.2MB and is available now for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.
