Firefox 1.0.6 to be with us sooner than expected?

Issues with the code in version 1.0.5 of FireFox and Thunderbird that were released last week may mean that that release will be short-lived, and that 1.0.6 will be with us very soon. Code changes have seemingly unintentionally stopped some third-party extensions from functioning correctly.

"There is a very real chance that some of the general security improvements in last week's 1.0.5 update may impact a number of extensions that worked with 1.0.4 and earlier, and we want to identify and address as many of these as possible before we release 1.0.6," Mozilla representatives said.
