According to "computerworld", Mozilla released Firefox 15.0.1 on Thursday to fix a bug that potentially exposed the websites visited by users while in "Private Browsing" mode.
"Private Browsing" mode enables Firefox users to surf the Web without leaving any traces of the visited websites behind.
According to a support article on Mozilla's website, while running in Private Browsing mode, the browser shouldn't save visited pages, form and search bar entries, passwords, download ds, cookies, or temporary Internet files, which are collectively known as cached Web content.
The cached Web content consists of images, script files and other resources downloaded automatically by the browser from visited websites. These files are saved and loaded directly from the disk when a Web page is revisited in order to decrease the page's overall loading time.
The bug addressed in Firefox 15.0.1 caused temporary Internet files to be saved inside the browser's disk cache instead of its memory cache when browsing in private mode. Unlike the disk cache, the memory cache is automatically cleared when the browsing session is terminated.
According to a discussion on Mozilla's Firefox bug tracker, the bug was introduced in Firefox 15.0, but was also present in development builds of Firefox 16, 17 and 18.
Users should be aware that when upgrading from Firefox 15.0 to Firefox 15.0.1, the temporary files already stored in the browser's disk cache are not automatically removed.
Users who want to review their disk cache entries can type about:cache in the browser's address bar and click on the "List Cache Entries" link from "Disk cache device" section.
