Mozilla patches bugs and crashes with Firefox 36.0.1

Mozilla has released a new version of Firefox, a week after Firefox 36 was released. The new version fixes several crashes and bugs including a bug that crashed the browser when Microsoft’s Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) was enabled. This is a free security tool from Microsoft that should make it harder for cyber criminals to attack Windows and applications.

Firefox 36 also contained several bugs which caused the Hello chat function to no longer function until the browser was restarted. Also print settings weren’t saved, hostnamed containing an underscore were not accepted, WebGL consumed too much memory and Hello contact-tabs were no longer visible.

The version also brings back the -remote option. Users can update to Firefox 36.0.1 through the automatic update feature of the browser or download the new version from Mozilla.org.
