Firefox 3.5.2 fixes ICC profiles, security issues

updated 01:25 pm EDT, Wed August 5, 2009

Firefox 3.5.2 update

Mozilla has released Firefox 3.5.2, updating its multi-platform web browser. A key fix in the release aids photographers, illustrators and other graphics professionals, by now properly rendering images with ICC profiles on all monitors. Such profiles are used to define color spaces, ensuring that the colors depicted on a display are those intended.

Also corrected are several security issues, including two listed as "critical" by Mozilla due to their allowing malware without user participation. The first involves a badly cached wrapper, while a second relates to crashes resulting in memory corruption. Less serious issues resolved include spoofing of the location bar and SSL indicator, and data corruption connected to SOCKS5 replies. The Mac update is a 17.6MB download.

    Status Quo just changed

    Oh, this is good--those people who put ICC profiles on their images but didn't actually test or know what that even means (which had a tendency to produce screwed-up images only in Safari, since it was the only browser that supported profiles) will now have messed-up images in a pretty large percentage of browsers.

    Should get them to fix it, though, and might even expand the use of profiles for legit reasons on the web.
