Outdated ATI drivers for T400 crash upcoming Firefox 4 and IE 9

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

I have a T400 running 32-bit Windows 7. I have downloaded the latest graphics drivers from the support page for my graphic card: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 Series.
The drivers seem to be outdated though, they date 24/08/2009 and have the following version number: 8.641.1.1000.
Firefox 4 and Internet Explorer 9 (both previews) crashes when hardware acceleration is used. I contacted both Mozilla and Microsoft and they both point to the graphic drivers. Is there any plan to release a newer driver?

If I'm not mistaken Firefox 4 and IE9 are both BETA. Meaning your going to get issues. That is why users testing BETA's are to report there issue. So I do not see why they are pointing the finger back to the GPU driver.
