Firefox 8.0.1, Mac & Java Crashes Update Part 3

The ‘patch’ mentioned earlier this week has landed on the Aurora (Firefox 10) and Beta (Firefox 9) channels on December 9, 2011. Mac users on OS X 10.6/10.7 using Firefox 8.0.1, will likely still need to wait until the Firefox 9.0 release on December 20, 2011 to see this patch. However, Bug 705931 is still showing open which means that the developers are still trying to test to see if this patch will resolve the JAVA crash issue.
