Firefox 5 update aims to fix Mac OS X bugs

The bug within OS X 10.7 Lion causes Firefox to crash if it is using downloadable fonts.

Mozilla is preparing to patch a flaw affecting the Firefox 5 browser on Apple's Leopard and Lion OS X operating systems.

The bug within OS X 10.7 Lion causes Firefox to crash if it is using downloadable fonts. Mozilla "alerted Apple to the problem before the release of 10.7, but they did not fix the problem before 10.7 went to final release,", the company wrote in a blog post Friday.

There is also a Java flaw within OS X 10.5, Leopard. Mozilla said it expects to apply the fixes before the release of Firefox 6, which is scheduled for August 16.
