Firefox 5.0.1 Released For OS X Only – Fixes 10.7 Lion Issue

(LiveHacking.Com) — The Mozilla Foundation has released Firefox 5.0.1 to address issues on Mac OS X.

This new version of Firefox has the following changes:

  • Worked around an issue in Mac OS X 10.7 that could cause Firefox to crash.
  • Worked around an issue caused by Apple’s “Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 5” where the Java plugin would not be loaded.

Although OS X 10.7 hasn’t been released yet there are rumours that its release is imminent and could even be today (July 14th). The Mozilla Foundation has therefore addressed the OS X 10.7 issue so that when Lion finally does hit the streets Firefox will work without any problems.

The other issue solves a problem with Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 5 which was released little over two weeks ago.
