Mozilla Firefox 3.0.7 closes several serious security vulnerabilities found in version 3.0.6 and earlier versions.  Three of the vulnerabilities in Firefox 3.0.6 are labeled "critical" by Mozilla while a fourth is labeled as "high" risk.  Details can be found at:  http://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox30.html#firefox3.0.6

UPDATE: New Firefox 3.0.7 and a complete set of language packs for VL 6.0 and VL 5.9/5.9.1 are now in the testing repository. Earlier versions of Vector Linux are also vulnerable but are no longer supported.  Users running earlier versions may want to obtain Firefox 3.0.7 directly from the Mozilla website.
