Mozilla 1.2 withdrawn due to DHTML bug

The developers of the open source project Mozilla surprisingly withdrew version 1.2 of their browser suite. This is affected by a DHTML bug, which has the effect that some DHTML menus are allegedly no longer displayed correctly.

The plan is now to release Mozilla 1.2.1 within a few days. However, since the bug was discovered at an inconvenient time during the US holidays, the corrected version will probably not be available for download until Monday at the earliest. As already mentioned, the release page of the project has been supplemented with a note regarding this bug and the download links have been removed, so that the most current version is again the Mozilla 1.2 beta, which was released in mid-October. However, Mozilla 1.2 is still playing on the official FTP server so that the DHTML bug can be further investigated. Since this is not a serious security hole, the developers see no reason to delete Mozilla 1.2 from the FTP server.
