hey, me too! I just posted in Forum Help asking if anyone else had this. I sometimes have to click on a thread three times before it loads.

Is it only Interf you guys are getting it on?

Meggie I installed some Java thing the other day and it made no difference so I guess it wasn't the same thing you did.

Funny thing though, with Mozilla i can't seem to get in on u2.com the official site. I can access the homepage but you know the news on the right? Well that stays all blanc, same as i hit the lyrics button or anything else for that mather. No text are shown, so to go there I have to use IE, even with all the pop-ups

Yeah, that also does not work for me. One of these days I'm gonna write the U2.com staff that they should design a good site, one that works.

OK, I'm going to mention it in this thread instead of opening a new one for it. Apparently, a security patch for FireFox for Windows was released yesterday, after a vulnerability in Windows Explorer was discovered.

For more details, look at this article on Newsforge:
http://software.newsforge.com/softwa...&tid=27&tid=31

You can now download version 0.9.2 of FireFox, or install the patch directly by clicking on the following link (this will open a window that asks if you want to install the package):
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.o...shellblock.xpi

Non-Windows versions of FireFox are safe.

For those interested in the vulnerability itself, here's the description for the Newsforge website:
Quote:
The hole

Specifically the vulnerability is a feature: it allows Windows programs to be run remotely through clicking on a link like one of these. The links use the shell: command to run arbitrary Windows programs or, at its most destructive, a denial of service attack on an individual machine by opening up programs that don't exist.

The kicker is that this isn't even a problem with Mozilla; it's a problem with Windows Explorer. Windows XP Service Pack 1 was supposed to have closed this hole, but apparently it is still functioning and leaving Windows systems open to remote attack. So the Mozilla team worked to patch a hole that had little to do with their project
C ya!

Marty

This is what I hate about Firefox and I blame it instead of my own lack of unserstanding. I clicked on that thing and it made no sense. It said there was no updates available.
Isn't not having them the point of clicking on something to update it?

Strange...

Well, then my advise is either you follow the link in the article (the first link I posted) or install version 0.9.2 entirely.
Sorry, but my nerd-skills aren't such on a Saturday evening that I can see from Dutchie-land what's happening in Aussie-land.

Upgrade to Firefox 0.9.2. There's a security vulnerability in the earlier versions that is fixed in this one. And that update issue is fixed too.

The main difference is that you then have 2 applications specialised in a certain task, instead of one program that wants to do everything. For the rest they're quite similar (not surprising since they are based on the same original code).
I think that Firefox is a bit faster, has a few options less (which can be added, BTW and none you desperately need for browsing the Web). The size of Firefox is also less than Mozilla.
I think the same holds for Thunderbird (the mail program based on the Mozilla application).

C ya!

Marty
