Mozilla has released version 1.5.0.1 of Firefox, fixing several security issues and bugs as outlined in the release notes. The one for Win32 can be downloaded from the official FTP (~ 5.2MB), and those for other languages and OS - from here.

312415 - Selected images (from a selection of the document to print) are black.
105894 - Clicking a partially off-screen link shouldn't scroll the page.
299343 - Can't copy and paste into the beginning of a line (Midas/designMode).
314222 - If link target URL has non-ASCII char that is not encoded by UTF-8, the default file name is always escaped at "Save Link As...".
312550 - Incorrect wrapping in RTL textarea with horizontal scrollbar.
311480 - "Firefox could not install this item because of a failure in Chrome Registration. Please contact the author about this problem." (This bug is responsible for the release note: "If Firefox 1.5 is installed on a multi-user system in a location which is not writable by users, Firefox must be run once by a privileged user. If this is not desirable, an empty file must be created in the following directory: <install-directory>/extensions/talkback@mozilla.org/chrome.manifest")
296907 - <canvas> fill/stroke shouldn't destroy path.
301678 - XML object parsed from string from flash throws permission denied error when accessed.
309044 - Flash Player 8 "Bad NPObject as private data!".
319391 - "eval('...') = ..." gives "invalid assignment lefthand side" as a compile-time error instead of as a runtime error (regression).
318489 - Unable to create new XMLHttpRequests and DOMParsers from an XPCNativeWrapped window (e.g. in a Greasemonkey script).
315434 - Security error with remote <xul:tabbox>: can't switch tabs if chrome has focus.

Security
319004 - Overlong page title causes hang on subsequent startups.
Other security holes not yet disclosed (as of 2006-02-01).
 
How can you possibly miss the update. A giant popup comes up (At least here).
 
Thanks man, I wouldn't have noticed it either.
 
Can't wait for the thread concerning 1.5.0.2 :mrgreen:
