Apple releases OS X 10.8.2 update for Mountain Lion: Facebook integration, iMessage fixes and more

OS X 10.8.2 update detailsLooks like one major software update wasn’t enough, as Apple is following its push of iOS 6 with OS X 10.8.2.

Firefox is built on a browser engine called Gecko, and the upcoming version 1.9.3 will have technology for Mac OS X 10.4 and before removed, he said.
