Mozilla Fixes 10 Firefox Bugs

Mozilla has just issued an update to Firefox 2 as well as 1.5. The new updates — version 2.0.0.1 and 1.5.0.9 respectively — patch 10 bugs in Firefox, seven of which are critical. Most of the bugs were in the JavaScript engine, SVG implementation and the Java run time. These affected Mozilla's other products as well, such as Thunderbird and SeaMonkey, both of which have also been updated. For a complete list of changes, click here.
But it seems that another bug that can let a malicious user steal passwords via the automatic password filling feature, has not been fixed yet. Secunia recommends disabling the feature till a patch is put out by Mozilla.

Firefox 2.0.0.1 and 1.5.0.9 will both be automatically updated when online and can also be downloaded separately.
