Support

  • 3.0.8 seems to more prone to crashes (or maybe a new malware came out at around the same time that is crashing Firefox).
    • zzxc is doing a lot of investigation with bug 467167 may be related to Apple's Bonjour service in windows.
  • New? malware: bug 488283 causing lots of problems for Italian users and likely other users. See also [1]
    • need to catch this in a debugger to figure out where it's holding up our normal exit
    • should also report the malware to the antivirus companies so they can update their patterns
  • 12 3.5 Forum threads this week, no new 3.5-specific issues. Support/Firefox3.5:Forumthreads
  • 3.1 -> 3.5 move is NOW done in en-US (my bad last week for missing articles that needed updating). cilias will do non-en-US today.
