New Mozilla browser supports Leopard, patches holes

Mozilla has released yet another update for its Firefox 2.0 web browser. Notable in this update is the addition of Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) support, although there are known problems with some media plug-ins as well as add-ons that contain binary components.

Other issues with the latest Firefox on Leopard surround the interface. For example, the “Advanced” tabs in “Preferences” will not render properly. Those who are heavy tab users should be careful when using the "Close Other Tabs" action on the shortcut menu of a tab, as it can fail with an error when more than 20 tabs are open.

Firefox is even more multilingual now with official support for Georgian (ka) and Romanian (ro), and a beta release for Kurdish (ku).

Several critical, moderate and low security issues were fixed, such as crashes with evidence of memory corruption. Other issues patched include the possible file stealing through sftp protocol, file input focus stealing vulnerability and XPCNativeWrapper pollution using Script object.

Internet users can download from Mozilla's homepage and current users of older versions may use the auto update function within the browser.
