Mozilla Firefox 188.8.131.52 Released
Tuesday March 20th, 2007
Mozilla Firefox 184.108.40.206 has been released. This update addresses several web compatibility regressions introduced with Firefox 220.127.116.11. For more information, refer to the Mozilla Firefox 18.104.22.168 Release Notes.
An update to address the same regressions for the Firefox 1.5 Branch, Mozilla Firefox 22.214.171.124 has also been released.
Apart from fixing "various web compatibility regressions", it only fixes one low security vulnerability, something to do with FTP PASV. Is that it? I mean in the Release notes they don't elaborate on what web compatibilities are fixed, as it is, was it necessary to get out an update right now?
I think the regressions were responsible for the early update, not the low-impact security issue
#4 WHat fixes?

#6 "UP"grade from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168 ?!?!

Anyone else get prompted to "upgrade" from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199 after they installed 188.8.131.52? I just had this happen and now it says I'm back on 184.108.40.206 again:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20070219 Firefox/18.104.22.168
So, I checked for updates again and it downloaded 22.214.171.124 yet again. Very strange!
#7 downgrade from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52 ?!?!

is there any chance that might have somehow "installed" 184.108.40.206 again, instead of actually installing 220.127.116.11?
would that possibility explain it wanting upgrade "again" ?

I upgraded to 126.96.36.199, and then made it check for updates again, and it says there aren't any updates. I think that got fixed in the meantime...

If it actually had 220.127.116.11 installed, then the about window was wrong. :-) I have several installations of 18.104.22.168 on different computers and it only happened on one so far. I'll keep an eye out. Thankfully, it didn't harm anything and is working just fine.

It's also happened to me. I guess there is a problem in the check-for-updates process.

Yes, I have the same problem. However, after I accept the downgrade, it still show version 2.0.03 when I restart firefox.
I tried to check for update again but it told me there is no new update. It shows "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/18.104.22.168" when I click 'About Mozilla Firefox' in the help menu. <http://www.mozillazine.or…ack.html?article=20840#13>
#10 "Customize" changes do not stay in place.

When I drag & drop items to the tollbars or menu bar, they do not stay there after I restart FF 22.214.171.124. Neither do the icons remain small. This began happening just before I even knew there was a v. 126.96.36.199. So I actually that was a strong hint to upgrade. It did not work, in any event. One Icon does remain in place, however, the one I care about the least; Stumble Upon.
Thanks , DV
