Firefox 5.0.1 fixes Lion crash, Java issues

Whereas version 5 was very, very prone to crashing under Mac OS X 10.7, I haven’t the same problems when running Firefox 6. Mozilla’s software simians have taken the matter to heart and delivered an updated that rectifies the problem, as well as a nettlesome Java plugin issue.

See, crabbing and grumbling does work. Open source browser maker Mozilla heard Lion users’ pleas for stability and have now released Firefox 5.0.1, which addresses Mac OS X 10.7 stability and plugin issues:

Carrara 3D Express• Worked around an issue in Mac OS X 10.7 that could cause[d] Firefox to crash [with alarming frequency]

• 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

Get your very own Lion compatible copy of Firefox 5.0.1 here. Alternately, just launch either Firefox versions 4 or 5 and the update will be pushed to you.
