German Government: Stop Using FirefoxBack in January, German government urged users to start using Firefox instead of Internet Explorer.

Well, due to security vulnerabilities (that were fixed in Firefox 3.6.2), they asked users to stop using Firefox as well, at least until patch is released.

So here you have it: start using Firefox, then stop, and now… Start using it again…

Thanks to Daniel Hendrycks and Ichann for the news tip.
