Firefox 9.0.1 Released!

WOW, that was quick!

Well, yes it was. It was a "chemspill" (i.e. emergency) update triggered by Firefox 9.0 crashing on startup, when a certain toolbar was installed, mostly on Mac OS X. The exact bug details are a little bit complicated, so I won't recite them here.

...and the list a bit loooong based on the complete list of changes fixed by the new version. I admit I don't know how to interpret the list, it's long, maybe some of the items are from a todo list. Santa has fewer chimneys to slide down than there are bug IDs.

I think that list includes all the changes in 9.0, the one at the top of the list is the crash that was fixed in 9.0.1.

That list does indeed include all sorts, not just out-and-out bugs but feature requests and enhancements too. Bugzilla gets used for everything.

The "Crash" bug (711794) doesn't cover it all (I did say it was complicated) because there was an underlying, but masked problem. It all gets rather complicated/interesting when talking about backing-out backouts! There's at least two other bug numbers involved. Nevermind, It it's all fixed for now.
