Mozilla fixes Firefox regressions, releases Version

Mozilla Corp. late Thursday released Firefox, an update it promised last week after it announced five bugs had been introduced by the previous version of the browser.

The update, which Mozilla has begun pushing to users who have enabled automatic updates, fixes multiple regression flaws. These include problems that crop up when code is changed to plug other holes, which developers spotted within days of Firefox's Oct. 18 debut.

Last week, Mozilla's user interface designer, Mike Beltzner, confirmed that several regressions had popped up, including one rated as critical.

According to Bugzilla, Mozilla's bug-tracking database, however, at least one of the five problems -1n't been completely resolved. The regression that stymied Firefox extensions from updating and installing on some Windows, designated Bug 396695, lacks the usual "FIXED" label. Mozilla fixes Firefox regressions, releases Version
