Mozilla has released a new update for Firefox to help fix the browser's various vulnerabilities.

23 of the 31 security flaws have been described as ‘critical’, with nearly half of the bugs being brought to light by ‘Inferno’ from the Google Chrome Security Team.

As well as fixing security problems, the new update focuses on a better gaming experience.

"Although its roots have been around for some time, Mozilla’s focus on games is a relatively new initiative," said Mozilla's Marin Best in a blog post on Tuesday.

"We are focused on making Firefox the best game development platform possible."

Firefox 15 adds support for new high-resolution timing API’s, which Mozilla says gives developers control over their interactive content down to a thousandth of a millisecond.

Looking towards the future, Mozilla has said that the second half of 2012 will see the company focus on Firefox for Android and Firefox OS.
