firefox 1.0.2 bug-fix released


there's a serious buffer-overrun bug in firefox 1.0.1 and below due to legacy netscape code. 1.0.2 release fixes this bug.

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050322 Firefox/1.0+

Hello I use FF trunks as you see. They seem to be doing very well in the dev for the 1.1 future release. I also run Slack 10.1 and has had only a few issues, the save auto for the configuration is due to not running GNome Desktop rather than KDE.

I could not even get 1.0.2 to installl.

also I have created a Linux / firefox Post on the Mozillazine Forums doe all us Linux users that use Firefox.

Feel free to go to Mozillazine and sign up and get the latest news and information regarding Firefox and Thunderbirrd.

Ijust took the Slackware Quiz, and being extremely new to Linux and Slackware I scored a measly 2.7% and failed it miserably. But then I took it to see the things I need to learn about, so it helped.

I do understand Firefox since I have been using it since last year. Pre 0.10RC2 and so far I have been blasted for what I know, and told I don't know. Oh well so much for programmers and men. They think women have no idea. Sometimes it is just better to walk off and try out a different route.

You would have been better of posting this in Linux General or Software.

In the spirit of offtopic:

Does anyone know what is the difference between aviary and trunk releases?

I know that FF 1.* is aviary family. But how much does it differ from trunk family?

Am using trunk nightly build on Mac Os X. And using stable FF1.0.1 Slackware official package for Slackware. Apart from Preferences, don't see much difference. (oh and occasional crashes in Mac Os X )

To continue this nice off topic discussion, where is that slackware quiz? I think I'd enjoy that. Could I please get a link, and I'll give thanks now for it.

Aviary is similar to a branch. second tier. The Trunk is for the more adventurous and also has the Options V menu on it as the Aviary does not. Also the 1.0.2 I believe can handle many of the Extensions and Themes for 1.0.

A move could have worked, but now I either have to gut this, or simply close it with a request to:

IN THE FUTURE:

Please post threads in their most appropriate forum for their topic.

Please keep topics on discussion, if you feel you have an OT yet related question, if you can keep it brief (such as the above exception) do so, if it's possibly lengthy or in depth, please start a new thread.

There really is no need to get into a bicker over silly things. If something is out of place, or something isn't right (someone's breaking rules, etc.) report the post and move on, allow the moderators or Jeremy to do what they do.

Thanks!

Closed.
