Canonical announced a few minutes ago, March 8, in a security notice, that they've updated the Mozilla Firefox packages to version 19.0.2, on all their supported Ubuntu operating systems.If you watch out website regularly, you probably know by now that Mozilla officially released the second patch to the stable Firefox 19.0 web browser yesterday, March 7, in order to fix a critical exploit discovered by a hacker at the Pwn2Own event.
Therefore, Mozilla Firefox 19.0.2 is now available for all supported Ubuntu platforms, including Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal), Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin), Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) and Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx).
All users are urged to upgrade to the new version as soon as possible, using the built-in Update Manager tool or the command-line mojo for savvy users.
For those of you who don't use Ubuntu, we've updated our database to Mozilla Firefox 19.0.2 with both binaries and sources for any Linux distribution. Also, don't forget to visit our always up-to-date Firefox Extensions section for the latest add-ons.
