Mozilla Releases Firefox 8.0.1

Filed under
Moz/FF

Mozilla is about to release an update for the latest stable version of Firefox. Firefox 8.0.1 will be released less than two weeks after the release of Firefox 8, the latest stable version of the popular Internet browser.

A fast release like this usually indicates a serious problem that needs to be addressed right away. Most issues that require an immediate response are security related in nature. This time though it seems to be a popular add-on that is causing stability issues for Firefox 8 users.
