Mozilla fixes flawed Firefox fix

Antony Savvas

The open source Firefox browser has been updated for the second time in just over a week after the previous fix caused problems.

The Mozilla Foundation has released version 1.0.6 of Firefox to fix version 1.0.5, which broke important application extensions, including e-mail encryption options.

There have now been more flaws in the Firefox browser this year than in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer – the browser that Firefox is aiming to take market share from.

Firefox's repeated updates mean users have to keep re-installing a whole new browser every time an update is released.

Mozilla is currently developing a browser update system to allow users to add just the updates in the same way Internet Explorer users can install theirs.
