Better Late Than Never: Mozilla Fixes 14 year old Bug

The Adblock Plus extension is very popular with users of Mozilla’s Firefox web browser, but there has been a long-standing issue with the way the browser handles its use of memory that caused a spike in the usage of memory. This is related to the creation of an excess number of style sheets. Now, 14 years after the initial filing of a bug report on this matter, the latest release of Firefox has fixed the problem.

Other bugs and a number of security issues were also addressed in this version. Find out more here:
