Geez, what's with all the hate towards Firefox lately, guys? I notice no problems when I surf the web with Firefox. This is a temporary issue that they will have resolved. You can't honestly expect them to foresee ever single problem with their browser, can you? And for that matter, anyone else, too.

**UPDATE**

Furthermore, we're lucky they even caught it early to begin with, rather than it being out in the wild and unknown to the masses for even longer.

LOL @ going to ie. your complaining about 1 tiny bug in firefox's javascript engine and your gonna jump to the most buggiest browser there is? isnt that pretty much going from having an open window to opening all windows and doors in your house? kinda retarded, considering the fix takes a whole 30 seconds to do. acaully less because in the time it took me to type this response i did the fix on all 4 computers in my house. funny how a 2 second fix is going to detour someone to switch browsers which would take like 8 times the lenght to download/install on all your pc's then it would to just do the fix and stop bitching about 1 tiny problem.

1 tiny bug? Go troll somewhere else I'll use what I want.. You obviously either 1. haven't been using it long enough to experience problems. Or 2. are oblivious to the articles written IN THIS SITE explaining more issues.

Oh, and I'll run IE8 any day, given that I actually know how use Windows Update to eliminate myself of most if any, bugs.

I'm sure they have other reasons, rather legitimately sound or not, for wanting to leave Firefox. However, I'm in agreement with you. This exploit can be fixed very simply.

Wow. Mozilla has just plain **cked up with 3.5 What gives? Temporary fix? No reason the end-user would have to do that, geez talk about Quality Control.

If the next release screws up I'm leaving Firefox all together and using either Opera or IE. Neither of which have huge issues.
