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.

An extension block request has been posted at Bugzilla. The request to hard block the popular Roboform extension has been added on November 2.
