Just days after the release of Firefox 3.6.4, Mozilla have pushed out Firefox 3.6.6. The update fixes 1 bug, but why Mozilla skipped version 3.6.5 is unknown.

“Firefox 3.6.6 modifies the crash protection feature to increase the amount of time that plugins are allowed to be non-responsive before being terminated” said the Firefox 3.6.6 release notes.

Existing Firefox 3.6.4 users will receive the update in the coming days, or it can be downloaded manually from the Firefox website. The update is available for Windows, Mac and Linux users.

    It’s not unknown why Firefox skipped 3.6.5 DUH!

    The third number is relative to the Gecko version. Firefox 3.6.3 uses Gecko, Firefox 3.6.4 uses Gecko and Firefox 3.6.6 uses Geckop Gecko is used by Firefox mobile, so there was never a Gecko for desktop to begin with.
