    Firefox Update (Firefox 2.0.0.14 )

    Firefox 2.0.0.14 has been released. This seems to do nothing other than fixing a critical vulnerability with javascript, but a critical vulnerability is a critical vulnerability...

    Cheers,

    Chris (Hunt)

    The main reason for the firedrill release was due to a regression that caused Firefox to crash in certain circumstances (was causing about 9% of all Firefox 2.0.0.13 crashes). This is the stability/security problem with JavaScript that you mention.
    There are 4 bug patches in this release, 2 of them to fix causes of crashes, the other 2 fix some relatively minor issues.

    I guess I must lead a charmed life, Tony! I can't remember the last time I've had a Fx crash. I got the .14 download just so the SW doesn't start nagging me... <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Bizarrely I've had more crashes today with Firefox 2.0.0.14 than I've had with previous versions in weeks! (But that may have been a side-effect of installing AVG 8.0 the day before...)
