Michael Kaply has released Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.5 (Official) for OS/2. This release is a security update, fixing 2 vulnerabilities, 1 of which is rated critical.

You can download it here:

http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/2.0.0.6/contrib/firefox-2.0.0.6.en-US.os2.zip

NOTE: This release requires the C runtime DLLs from Innotek. Version 0.5.1 includes an installer. Available here:

http://download.innotek.de/gccos2/runtime/libc-0.5.1.exe

NOTE: This release requires IPLUGINW.DLL to use the Java and Flash plugins. Available here:

or here:

NOTE: To have both Firefox, & Thunderbird in use at the same time (or ANY other Mozilla app) they *MUST* be at the SAME version level, or a mismatched DLL will still be in memory when you attempt to start a second Mozilla based program. The easiest way to get around this limitation, and use DIFFERENT version levels of Firefox, Thunderbird, Kompozer, etc., is with Rich Walsh's Run! utility. It is tiny, and VERY easy to set up. To make life even easier, I recommend that you download & use the Internet Application Integration utility from Chuck McKinnis, which actually contains the Run! utility, and sets it up for you, along with coordinating your web browser with your email client for "mailto" links, etc. You can find it here:

Or, if you'd rather do it yourself, here is the Run! utility:
