Thought some of you might like to have a read of this, it has restored my confidence in FF.

Interesting article. I was impressed how fast they fixed it and it filtered down to a fixed dot version in Debian repos, but now reading it was less than 12 hours for the FF team to roll it out is almost amazing.
Never lost faith, it's still my everyday browser and has been for most of this century.
