Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.6 Fixes Windows Media Player Regression

Wednesday August 2nd, 2006

Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.6 is now available for download. Hot on the heels of last week's Firefox 1.5.0.5 release, this update fixes a Windows Media Player plugin regression introduced in version 1.5.0.5. Firefox 1.5.0.5 included a fix for bug 181860, which unintentionally blocked the Microsoft Media Services (MMS) protocol used by some Windows Media content. This regression was reported as bug 346167 after the release of 1.5.0.5 and led to today's rapid release of 1.5.0.6. We understand that there are no other major changes in Firefox 1.5.0.6 and no new security bugs have been fixed. According to the Mozilla Developer News weblog post about Firefox 1.5.0.6, users will be offered the upgrade through the Firefox software update system over the next twenty-four to forty-eight hours. However, the impatient can download the release now from the Mozilla Firefox product page. See the Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.6 Release Notes for more information.

When you import or upgrade your cookies using 1.5.0.6 it prepends a period '.' to each and every cookie in the cookies.txt file. This is a bug in Firefox 1.5.0.6 that did not exist in 1.5.0.5.

This causes every cookie to duplicate automatically each time Firefox actually uses the cookie by visiting the corresponding site that created the cookie.

This was reported by customers using our product with Firefox 1.5.0.6.
