Firefox 8 – Ready to install?

23 July 2011
Melbourne Australia

On receiving an email from my brother that his Firefox updated to version 6 overnight, I was surprised.

Mainly because on version 5 was released recently but then also because, (per below) it said I had the most up to date release.

Not to be done I Googled ‘Firefox 6 ‘ and a file came up from Mozilla for Firefox 6 so I downloaded it.

On installation the installer said there is a new version of Firefox available 7, would I like to download it.

On installing 7 the same thing happened and version 8 was offered (see below).

I little confused

Perhaps these are all betas but seem very stable/mature

Version 9 looks to be in early alpha so I will ignore testing it for now

I never found Version 6
