Mozilla pulls latest browser downloads and then quickly releases fix

By Derek Sooman on December 3, 2002, 4:41 AM
Remember I was raving about the new Mozilla 1.2 version here? Well, it has only been just a few days and already there is a problem. A problem so bad that Mozilla themselves have pulled downloads of the software.

"The newest bug affects some Web pages developed with dynamic HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), or DHTML--an advanced programming language that combines JavaScript, cascading style sheets, and the Document Object Model (DOM), among other technologies, to create a page that can change dynamically after it has loaded onto a browser. "

More here at ZDNET.COM

HOWEVER as of yesterday, Mozilla have posted a new build here which apparently has fixed the problem.

If you installed version 1.2, then I recommend that you upgrade to version 1.2.1 as soon as possible to avoid any problems.

Mozzila seems to be a huge program.I saw 40 MB was the smallest download ... is this because it's w3 compliant?

You should get the binary version unless you really want to mess with the source. It's not really big IMHO - just think what the full install of IE6 or 7 is.
