Mozilla Releases Another Firefox Update

Hot on the heels of Firefox 3.0.2, which fixes numerous security problems, Mozilla released Firefox 3.0.3 to fix yet another problem that locks some people out of their stored passwords.

According to Mozilla's Mike Beltzer, "users who have password data stores with non-ASCII data saved as something other than UTF-8 (more common for people who have saved passwords on IDN domains or non en-US domains) will not be able to access their saved passwords or create any new saved passwords." The passwords are still there they simply cannot be accessed.

Beltzer said Firefox 3.0.3 was released to quality assurance testing last week and the company has now formally release Firefox 3.0.3.
