Updated Firefox 3.6 beta fixes 190 bugs Mozilla has released the latest update of the Firefox 3.6 beta, fixing a large 190 bugs from the original release.
Additionally, Yahoo Tech says "all current Firefox 3.6 beta users have been issued an update containing improvements of interest to users as well as web and add-on developers."

Firefox Director Mike Beltzner noted specifically that one of the main bug fixes was a mechanism "to prevent incompatible software from crashing the browser."

For most Firefox users, you will likely want to wait before downloading the new beta, however. "Most add-ons have not yet been upgraded by their authors to be compatible with Firefox 3.6 Beta," Beltzner said.

Thank God, as much as I love FF, 3.5.X has been crashing on me like there's no tomorrow with the usual 'We're sorry FF crashed' or w/e message it says. Don't know how it manages it but it's literally like a CTD, or feels like it anyway.

I still think version 2 was the best but it's obsolete now :(
