Mozilla 1.7.1, Mozilla Firefox 0.9.2 and Mozilla Thunderbird 0.7.2 Released

The Mozilla Foundation has just released a trio of new Mozilla releases to the fix the Windows shell: security vulnerbility reported earlier. Mozilla 1.7.1, Mozilla Firefox 0.9.2 and Mozilla Thunderbird 0.7.2 contain no new features other than a preference change that disables the shell: protocol handler. Users who have installed the ShellBlock 1.0 XPI patch in all their Mozilla applications do not need to upgrade. Visit the sample exploit page to see if you are at risk. More details and download links are available in the Mozilla Foundation's security bulletin about the shell: exploit.

Did anyone noticed if you go Start, all programs, Mozilla, it nows list a Mozilla Firefox (safe mode)???...What is that, I tried it & didn't notice anything different.
Failure is not an option, it comes bundled with the software.

Yes, I noticed that, too... From what I read in MozillaZine a couple days ago, it appears that Firefox doesn't use any extensions when started in Safe Mode. :)

That's exactly correct; I was getting error messages and some troubles with 0.9.2 but when I discovered safe mode; voila! worked like a charm temporarily.

Mozilla 1.8 Alpha 2 Released

The Mozilla Foundation has just released Mozilla 1.8 Alpha 2, following a short trunk freeze that began at the end of June. In this release, users can open blocked popups and consolidate all their POP3 mail in a global inbox. Initial support for the new Netscape Plugin API extensions has also been implemented.

In May, the Foundation switched to a new milestone schedule with a longer alpha period and two alpha releases in each development cycle. The next freeze is scheduled for Wednesday 4th August, with the target for Mozilla 1.8 Beta set at couple of days later.

More information about 1.8a2 is available in the Mozilla 1.8 Alpha 2 Release Notes. Builds can be downloaded from the the mozilla1.8a2 directory on ftp.mozilla.org.
