Mozilla Postpones Firefox 3.6.x - 7.0 Update

Mozilla's release manager Christian Legnitto made a blog post announcing the postponement of the previously scheduled 3.6-to-7.0.1 advertised update.

The organization had planned to flip a switch so that users of Firefox 3.6 would be prompted to get the latest version, Firefox 7.0.1. That change that would get a large fraction of people onto Mozilla's rapid-release process--Firefox 3.6 was the second most widely used version of the browser in September, and Mozilla expects the upgrade prompt to encourage a lot of people to make the move.
