With this we also see Firefox close the month of June with a market share of 19%. However, as far as Firefox 3.0 is concerned the data shows that growth for version 3.0 mostly came from people upgrading from Firefox 2.0 - Firefox 2.0 market share dropped 1.57%, compared to the 1.59% gained by Firefox 3.0.
