Mozilla updates Firefox to version 3.6.4 with 'Crash Protection' Mozilla had updated their popular Firefox browser to version 3.6.4 today, adding "crash protection."
Crash Protection isolates third-party plug-ins when they crash, if you are using the Windows or Linux versions of the browser, allowing the main browser to remain stable.

If you are watching videos online, or playing games that require a third-party plug-in and that plug-in freezes, users can simply refresh their page and continue browsing "uninterrupted."

As of version 3.6.4, Firefox offers "crash protection" for Adobe Flash, Apple Quicktime and Microsoft Silverlight.

Firefox currently controls about 26 percent of overall browser market share.
