Patience please - the developers are currently very busy with Avant v12. The current Orca release is barely 3 months old and works very well. Nagging will not help.

We understand what you mean but currently, as far as I know, there is no code in the wild that takes advantage of the security issues in the version of Gecko that Orca is using right now (3.5.6).

Just keep on developing it and I'm a really happy camper here in Orca. I appreciate the progress.
