Which Internet browser do you use? There are plenty of programs to choose from out there, from Apple's Safari browser to Google Chrome. Well, if Mozilla's popular Firefox browser is your software of choice, it's time to update your software to ensure you get these critical security fixes.

Mozilla this week released the newest Firefox 37 browser along with 13 total security patches. Four of those fixes are listed as critical and deal with issues that pose potential security threats.

"Security researcher Jordi Chancel reported a mechanism that made [the] cursor invisible through flash content and then replaced it through the layering of HTML content," Mozilla warned in its advisory. "This flaw can be in used in combination with an image of the cursor manipulated through JavaScript, leading to clickjacking during subsequent interactions with HTML content."

The update also includes a few new security tools for Firefox users that will make browsing safer than ever.
