Firefox 10 relieves add-on updating pain

Filed under
Moz/FF

Mozilla today patched eight vulnerabilities in Firefox as it shipped the latest iteration in its rapid release schedule.

Firefox 10, sixth in the line of updates that have been rolling off the development line every six weeks since mid-2011, fixed half a dozen flaws rated "critical," Mozilla's highest threat ranking, and another two labeled "high."

One of the notable vulnerabilities addressed in Firefox 10 could open users to cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks because the browser did not properly run a security check when calling untrusted scripting objects, said Mozilla.

"The fix enables the Script Security Manager (SSM) to force security checks on all frame scripts," an accompanying advisory noted.

GNOME and KDE

  • Community Time at Collabora [Ed: Mono]
  • Refocus
    Sometimes all those GNOME programming projects are driving me crazy. [...] Note that for that last item, I would use LaTeXila of course, so if there are some regressions due to some library changes (you perfectly know which library in particular I mean), I’ll probably become aware of the regressions and fix them. Without any guarantees, I repeat. So if someone wants to take over LaTeXila maintenance, I would be more than happy. In the condition that I can still recognize my old pet project afterwards and is still mostly bug-free.
