Ubuntu 5.04 : mozilla-firefox regressions (USN-149-2)

High Nessus Plugin ID 20545


The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.


USN-149-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in the Firefox web browser.
Unfortunately that update introduced a lot of regressions, especially when using extensions, so another update is necessary. The new packages ship Firefox version 1.0.6 which should now work well with most extensions (one known exception is the package 'mozilla-tabextensions').

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected packages.
