“Latest” firefox

A little rant to keep my blog from rotting, firefox after 3.0 or so no longer works on kernels that randomize memory allocation a bit. Ones choices are either patching firefox or to disable the randomization for it. And we all know if one application needs all the security layers one can get then its the modern web browsers.
Not to mention how one can be so lame to have such bug open for ages and still not even produce an error message but rather run mmap() munmap() in an infinite loop.
