Mozilla Firefox Version 27.0.1 Released


Mozilla sent Firefox Version 27.0.1 to the release channel.  If you've been experiencing the same instability as I have with Version 27.0, hopefully the fix noted below will solve the problem. 

There is no indication at this time of security fixes.

Fixed in Firefox 27.0.1

  • FIXED -- 27.0.1 - Fixed stability issues with Greasemonkey and other JS that used ClearTimeoutOrInterval
  • FIXED -- 27.0.1 - JS math correctness issue (bug 941381)

Known Issues

  • Unresolved -- Moving Firefox to background while playing a flash video in full screen mode and bring it back to view will freeze the app (see 809055)
  • Unresolved -- Text Rendering Issues on Windows 7 with Platform Update KB2670838 (MSIE 10 Prerequisite) or on Windows 8.1 has a workaround (see 812695)


To get the update now, select "Help" from the Firefox menu at the upper left of the browser window, then pick "About Firefox."  Mac users need to select "About Firefox" from the Firefox menu.

If you do not use the English language version, Fully Localized Versions are available for download.


Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...

Great that they finally updated FF. To be honest, there are so many awesome browser that can bу based on Firefox and are better in usage, for example Waterfox or Torch. Torch is based on Chrome though, but it's my favorite out of the bunch.
But I will check out what's new in Firefox anyway, thanks for this post.
