Mozilla Firefox 11 is marked as insecure and gets downgraded via auto-update to the Firefox 10.0.3 ESR version.

The ESR Version only exists for companies and Mozilla will not be happy that their users get downgraded and I'm also not happy....

You should drop the auto-update support for Firefox after all the issues with it (wrong languages and now wrong version "upgrades"). Firefox12 will get an Windows service for doing the upgrades and I bet that PSI will screw up with this new Service.

Hello Nightdive ,

You are quite correct , this could become a big problem for Secunia PSI users :((((

Their latest PSI "silent updaters" may well be based on their CSI "installers" where 10.0.3 ESR is probably very relevant ; support will be back on Monday (CET) and will need to get to grips with Mozilla Firefox (and other) updating at the earliest .

Not sure that 10.0.3 is a "downgrade" as such , although coming after you updated to 11.0 it probably is , at least it is secure :) :(

You can either :-

post back here with all your data , such as , OS and PSI version , original Ff 10.0.2 channel , etc. and whether the PSI ran an "auto-update" or you ran their manual solution and monitor this thread next week .

or:-

send the same by email to support@secunia.com

(preferrably do both) .

Take care

Anthony
