Firefox update fixes compatibility snags
Mozilla phases out 1.5 release
By John LeydenMore by this author
Published Thursday 22nd March 2007 10:10 GMT

Mozilla pushed out a minor update to its Firefox web browser on Wednesday, chiefly designed to address glitches with a more significant security update issued late last month.

The latest update - Firefox 2.0.0.3 and Firefox 1.5.0.11 - also addresses a low-risk file transfer protocol (FTP) port-scanning security bug, as explained in an advisory from the Mozilla Foundation here.

In related news, the Mozilla Foundation announced that no further security or stability updates will be made for Firefox 1.5 users after 24 April. Users are encouraged to upgrade to Firefox 2 before this date.
