Firefox 3.0.9 to ADS workstations

Managed Firefox 3.0.9 is going to be deployed to those users who have subscribed to the Software Delivery Request on Monday April 27.

There have been reports that when Information Systems & Technology (IST) CSS deploys an upgrade to Firefox the Desktop or Quick Launch shortcut break. The solution is to create your shortcut from the real executable in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox and not from the Start Menu.
