Mozilla rolled out Firefox 220.127.116.11 a few days ago, being a version which was supposed to patch approximately 200 glitches. Although it fixed most of them, it appears that it also caused some others making the application a little buggy. However, Mike Beltzner of Mozilla wrote on the companyâ€™s blog that Firefox 18.104.22.168 is currently in labs and might be released next week for all the users. The matter can be called â€œan update to fix the updateâ€ because the new patches will be released to repair the fixes which were launched a few days ago.
â€œThe 22.214.171.124 release fixed some 200 issues, but accidentally regressed a few things. Most users wonâ€™t see any difference or experience any problems, and those 200 fixes make the 126.96.36.199 update very valuable, but you should never have to choose functionality over security. So weâ€™re working fast to understand and fix these problems, and will shortly be issuing a 188.8.131.52 update to address them,â€ the Mozilla official wrote on the companyâ€™s blogs.
According to the blog post, one of the main problems of the 184.108.40.206 release of Firefox is the Java compatibility with Windows Vista, the latest operating system powered by Microsoft. It seems like every time a user tries to load a Java applet in the new Firefox, he gets an error saying â€œJava not foundâ€ or â€œJava not workingâ€. It can be easily fixed by â€œright-clicking the Firefox icon and â€œRun as administratorâ€, then browsing to a page with a Java applet â€” doing this once will fix the problem and permanently restore Java functionality.â€ However, Mozilla wants to fix this by default so all the users would be able to access Java applets.
