Firefox 16.0.1 now released, this time without vulnerability

As we reported yesterday, users were told to downgrade to Firefox 15.0.1 from version 16, because of a vulnerability. Now, that vulnerability has been fixed, and Firefox 16.0.1 is now available.

To get the newest version of Firefox now (if it hasn’t already prompted you), click the Orange Firefox button, select Help > hit About Firefox > Check for Updates.

On the same blog post pointed to yesterday, Mozilla developer(s) placed an update:
