Mozilla has pushed out another Firefox update - version 188.8.131.52 - to fix a new bug that caused problems when the browser was rendering 'canvas' HTML elements. The newest update comes just days after Mozilla released Firefox version 184.108.40.206, the first time the open-source browser has been updated in the same week.
The most recent canvas problems were detailed last week by Mozilla, which said at the time it expected to have an updated version out by last Friday.
Canvas elements, which were first used by Apple in its Safari browser, allow website designers to dynamically render bitmap images in HTML. Firefox, Safari and Opera support Canvas natively; Microsoft's Internet Explorer does so with a plug-in.
All editions of Firefox 220.127.116.11 - for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux - break pages that include the Canvas element, and cripple at least two Firefox extensions, FoxSaver and Fotofox.
The new version of Firefox is available for free download on the Mozilla website.
