UPDATE: Firefox 1.5.0.5

Firefox 1.5.0.5 has been released.

August 3rd, 2006 at 4:00am — Comments: (0) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Firefox

A new version of Firefox has been released. This version of Firefox is a security/stability release and I believe it may be the last 1.x.x.x version before 2.0 is released, provided no other security issues pop up.

Some of the issues addressed in this release include:

  • Chroma Scheme loading remote content has been fixed.
  • Crashes with evidence of memory corruption
  • JavaScript engine vulnerabilities
  • Native DOM methods can be hijacked across domains
  • JavaScript navigator Object vulnerability
  • Code execution through deleted frame reference

The remaining security issues can be viewed at the Firefox website under Release Notes.

If you still don't have the best browser out there, click on the image below to get the latest  Firefox version.

Get Firefox!

UPDATE: Well, count on me for jinxing the release. :-) Version 1.5.0.6 was just released because of a Windows Media streaming issue. Make sure you update your Firefox today.

There's another post on the release over at MozillaZine.
