Details

Updated firefox packages that fix a stability issue are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.

A stability bug was found in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Firefox packages
released in RHSA-2008:0103. These packages were linked against an incorrect
version of a library which would cause Firefox to randomly crash while the
browser was in use.

Enterprise Linux 4.

Users of firefox are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolves this issue.
