Mozilla to Update Firefox (again)

August 2, 2006

If you are a user of Firefox, you should make sure you are updated. Mozilla Corp. will update Firefox for the second time in seven days because last week’s v. 1.5.0.5 introduced a bug to the browser, the company said Monday.According to online notes of the company’s weekly development meeting, a fix to Firefox included in last week’s 1.5.0.5 injected a new bug that stopped the Windows Media Player plug-in from working on some sites.

To fix the new flaw, Mozilla will unveil Firefox 1.5.0.6 Tuesday night “if everything goes smoothly,” read minutes from the weekly status meeting held Monday afternoon. The update will be posted on the Mozilla site for download and pushed to current users via the browser’s built-in automatic update tool.

Firefox 1.5.0.5 was released last Wednesday, July 26, to plug 13 vulnerabilities, 8 of which were tagged as “critical” by the Mountain View, Calif. open-source developer.

In other Mozilla news, the company also set the end of August as the roll-out date for the first beta of the new Thunderbird e-mail client. Thunderbird 2.0 Alpha 1 hit the company’s download servers last Thursday.
