Mozilla rushes to fix regression bugs in Firefox

Postby rockingmtranch » Thu Oct 25, 2007 2:35 pm

Mozilla Corp. will rush another version of Firefox to users as early as next week, the company's user interface designer said Tuesday, to fix five bugs it introduced in last Wednesday's security update.

Firefox 2.0.0.8 patched ten vulnerabilities, including three critical flaws, but also shipped with five regression bugs -- problems unintentionally introduced when code was changed to plug other holes.

"Most users won't see any difference or experience any problems," said Mike Beltzner of Mozilla in a posting to the company's development center blog. "We're working fast to understand and fix these problems, and will shortly be issuing a 2.0.0.9 update to address them."
