Minor Firefox update addresses stability glitches
Nothing to see here, please move along
Mozilla pushed out a minor update for Firefox on Thursday that fixes a number of stability and performance glitches.
Firefox version 126.96.36.199 fixes problems introduced with version 188.8.131.52, which was released two weeks ago on 18 October, but nothing flagged as security related.
The 184.108.40.206 update addresses a number of niggling bugs, including the possibility that some add-ons might be disabled after updating from the previous release. Another bug with the 220.127.116.11 release meant the browser, in rare instances, crashed at startup, as explained in greater depth here.
The latest release of the open source browser is essentially a house-keeping exercise, cleaning up problems inadvertently introduced with the October update, which fixed scores of problems.
"The 18.104.22.168 release fixed some 200 issues, but accidentally regressed a few things," Mozilla sheepishly explains. ®
