Firefox 3.0.3 will be released soon

Quick Firefox update on its way to fix saved credentials access issues
By: Percy Cabello
Published: September 24th, 2008

A bug, found in yesterday’s Firefox 3.0.2 update, that prevents access to saved passwords that include international characters either in the web address the password is saved for, the login, or the password itself, has prompted planning for a quick Firefox update.

Mike Beltzner, Firefox lead, explains in a post to the mozilla.dev.planning group:

The symptom is that users who have password data stores with non-ASCII data saved as something other than UTF-8 (more common for people who have saved passwords on IDN domains or non en-US domains) will not be able to access their saved passwords or create any new saved passwords. There is no permanent dataloss, the saved data is just inaccessible. While this doesn’t affect all Firefox users, it is a significant regression and has triggered a fast-release Firefox 3.0.3 which will contain a single fix for this issue.

A fix is ready, and as soons as QA gives the go ahead, it will be available as Firefox 3.0.3 for users to update, most likely, some time next week.

Yeah you did but that's ok. It's kinda separate. I have been having crashes though out of the blue on certain sites. Not even a report option comes up when I restart. But I'm off topic.

Yep, it was a new version so I posted it seperate. I also figured more people would see it as a new thread than a response to this one. I have not had any problems with either yet (knock on wood)
