Update available for Firefox Browser

Posted By on April 13, 2006

FireFox updateFor those of us using the Firefox browser, there is an update available that should fix a couple issues, especially a security flaw. For those of you still using Internet Explorer, you might want to consider giving Firefox a test drive; I really like it on the PC. (Safari seems to still run faster on Mac and that is especially noticeable on the new Intel -based Macs)

I have noticed a few crashes lately and am hoping this will solve the problem. Fixes in Firefox 1.5.0.2:

  • Spoofing with translucent windows
  • Security check of js_ValueToFunctionObject() can be circumvented
  • Privilege escalation through Print Preview
  • Privilege escalation using crypto.generateCRMFRequest
  • File stealing by changing input type
  • CSS Letter-Spacing Heap Overflow Vulnerability
  • Crashes with evidence of memory corruption (rv:1.8.0.2)
  • Fixed in Firefox 1.5.0.1
