There's been a new Firefox version released, just a few days ago. This release does cover a security fix.
The latest released version of Firefox is version 3.5.1
If you have any earlier versions of Firefox, get the latest one.

FYI, My Firefox auto-updated to version 3.5.2  (yesterday I believe).  <lol>
I've gone into the Options settings and turned off "automatically check for updates" under Tools/Options > Advanced > Update tab

Firefox version 3.6.9 released September 7 -- fixes several bugs / security issues
See the release notes
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/3.6.9/releasenotes/

As a sidenote, but related, ZDNet has an article
Mozilla patches DLL load hijacking vulnerability
Quote
The open-source group released Firefox 3.6.9 with patches for a total of 15 vulnerabilities (11 rated critical), including the publicly known DLL load hijacking flaw that exposes Windows users to remote code execution attacks.
The majority of the 15 vulnerabilities in this Firefox patch batch could be exploited to launch drive-by download attacks from booby-trapped Web sites.
