Firefox Flaws Fixed



Courtesy of TechWeb News

The Mozilla Foundation late Tuesday updated both its Firefox browser and Thunderbird e-mail client for the second time in eight days to fix flaws that popped in last week's refreshes.

Versions 1.0.6 of both Firefox and Thunderbird, said Mozilla, have been patched to "restore API (Application Programming Interface) compatibility for extensions and Web applications "which were unintentionally broken in the editions released last week.

One of the most popular extensions for Thunderbird, Enigmail PGP, which is used to encrypt e-mail, wouldn't work with the 1.0.5 version, for instance.

This week's updates should quiet the complaints from the developers of foreign language editions, who were told last week by Mozilla to skip localized versions of 1.0.5, and await Tuesday's 1.0.6.

Firefox 1.0.6 and Thunderbird 1.0.6 can be downloaded from the Mozilla Web site.
