Mozilla is out this week with its largest patch update yet for the Firefox 3.6 browser, closing the door on 14 reported security vulnerabilities, eight of which Mozilla rates as critical issues.

The new Firefox 3.6.7 release comes just ahead of the annual Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas. Last year, Mozilla rushed out patches after the event to fix security issues that had been identified or discussed by security researchers there.

It's unclear whether any of the new fixes in Firefox 3.6.7 are meant to be potentially proactive. However, Mozilla is actually playing catch-up when it comes to at least one threat that other browser vendors have already addressed.

With Firefox 3.6.7, Mozilla is providing users with a PNG image fix for a flaw that had first been patched by Google's Chrome earlier this month.
