View Full Version : Warty Backport: Firefox 1.0.1
March 15th, 2005, 04:05 AM
This is probably the last backport for Warty. Firefox 1.0.1 resolves (sort of) the IDN spoofing security issue.
The source archive directly came from Debian Sid. Hoary is now under a freeze, so I couldn't get this latest version from Hoary!

Thank you Jdong.
Do you know if Hoary will get the 1.0.1 too? (since it is a security fix)?

yep, it has :)

Ok, Hoary got an official Firefox 1.0.1 update, and I've recompiled that for Warty. It's currently uploading as revision 84.

O.k. I think I found a bug. I recently upgraded to FF 1.0.1 and with that version I am no longer able, to save files when clicking on links.
It does work to use "save target as ..." as well as opening it directly in the associated program.
I used the latest version UBP with Firefox-Gnome-Support and the german language pack.
Can anyone confirm that error?
P.S.: The error disappears, if I force firefox back to version 1.0-2.

I can confirm this; but I'll push this to the stable branch to fix the waaay outstanding security issues!
Hoary has an upgraded Firefox -- I'm gonna package that next.

According to ubuntu-users, we're gonna get Firefox 1.0.2 in Hoary very soon.
I'll backport this to Warty.
