Mozilla has released version 102.0.1 of its Firefox browser and Thunderbird email client. Both new versions contain several bug fixes. In Firefox, there were small errors in the bookmark function and the multilingual spell checker, in Thunderbird the errors affected, among other things, changed passwords and the address book.
With the new Firefox version, there should no longer be any aborts when creating a link to a bookmark by dragging it into the Windows file explorer. In addition, the bookmarks bar should no longer flash white in dark mode, according to the Firefox 102.0.1 release notes. The multilingual spell checker should now also be able to deal with English-language content that is written in a non-Latin alphabet.
Hook just disappeared
Fixed an annoying bug in Firefox’s developer tools where the console output would always scroll to the bottom when the last visible message was a rating result. In addition to stability improvements, Firefox has also fixed a bug that caused the “Clear cookies and website data when quitting Firefox” checkbox to disappear every time the browser was started.
Password bug in Thunderbird
In Thunderbird, the developers have improved the user interface and updated the icons. They also fixed two annoying bugs: Thunderbird just kept using old passwords after you changed them, and if you had multiple accounts on Thunderbird, you only got new email notifications for one of them.
Another bug that is gone with the update: Mailbox MSF files could sometimes be damaged. There were also problems with the OpenPGP encryption up to the update: the corresponding assistant did not display a status for addresses managed via aliases; There were problems when attaching an external public OpenPGP key if it was configured with a subkey ID, according to the Thunderbird 102.0.1 release notes.
Address book revised
The other bugfixes in Thunderbird concerned the address book. For example, LDAP address books could not be configured with IPv6 address literals, and CardDAV contacts with more than one email address could not always be processed, especially those hosted by Google. In addition, the address book has been made more accessible with the update. Mozilla released both Firefox and Thunderbird in the new major version 102 at the end of June.
