Firefox 1.5.0.2 fix brings many needed changes

By Justin Mann on April 14, 2006, 2:47 PM
If you are using Firefox, whether on Windows, Linux or Mac, it's in your best interest to go and get the latest version from Mozilla's site! Firefox 1.5.0.2 fixed various issues with the browser, including some related to memory leaks and privilege escalation (which can ultimately result in system compromise). As far as I can tell, all the bugs with updates removing bookmarks and breaking plugins have been fixed, and after updating everything seems to be fine, even 3rd-party plugins. You can read the full release notes for more details. Download today!

Installed it via the Auto-update feature myself this morning, no problems with it. Also of note - Firefox 3 passes Acid 2;[url]http://flickr.com/photos/dbaron/126886608/[/url]

Still waiting for FFX 1.5.0.1 in Linux to ask me to upgrade...IN an other Windows PC it's already done.

[quote] Firefox updated fine here this morning in FC5.[/quote]It was in the updates-development I think.And Thunderbird 1.5.0.2 release-candidate, even if it's not released, will probably be the one released : It's the same date as FFX 1.5.0.2. So I decided to install it and have no problems.
