Mozilla fixes Firefox launch crashes

Mozilla released two new versions of Firefox to deal with a surprise problem that was crashing the browser during launch.

Mozilla released on Wednesday two new versions of Firefox, 3.6.10 and 3.5.15, to deal with a surprise problem that was crashing the browser during launch.

Mozilla had released the preceding versions a week earlier but cut off downloads when the bug emerged.

The problem hadn't reared its head particularly prominently in pre-release test versions, release manager Christian Legnitto said in a bug comment.
