Update to Beta 5: Firefox lost saved passwords

Just a quick heads up, even if it may be a personal gremlin here on my box:
I updated Beta 4 to Beta 5 through Yast, and after a reboot, Firefox lost all saved passwords. I think they are still there (at least the signons3.txt looks like it) but Firefox leaves all authentication fields empty, and the password exporter plugin writes an empty file.

I can confirm this, although I'm not sure if it was due to a Mozilla
Firefox SVN update to 3.0.4 or my own stupidity somehow - luckily I had
a backup of my password on another computer

If you look in to your profile, passwords are safe but firefox just
doesnt see them.

Well, it's working again (beta 5.1) now, with the firefox from the
mozilla build-service.

Yep, but IMHO this is not an option, Folks, please check the bug entry and contribute information.

sudo zypper wp modutils

Can't find where certutil comes from, but maybe it is there anyway (it is here)

crash stats for Firefox Mobile beta 5 and Firefox beta 11/12
I told bsmedberg I would post about this to dev.planning, but I forgot. Due to a change that was landed on mozilla-central to get a startup performance win[1], the crash stats for Firefox Mobile beta 5 as well as desktop Firefox betas 11 and 12 were broken[2]. Specifically, the elfhack code caused the stack-walking software used in crash-stats to be unable to accurately walk stacks, causing nonsensical stack traces to be produced. Due to the complete lack of usable crash stats for the Firefox Mobile beta, we filed a bug to fix the broken crash reports and reprocess them[3], which has a...

Name: Product: Firefox Summary: Firefox Beta 3.6 Beta 5 Suggestions Comments: Important Suggestions:- 1. Include one more option in the Advanced> Update Options that the users want to include Beta and RC Updates or not? 2. Instead of making the update a clean install make it a update only. For e.g. the changes in Firefox were of only 500KB so the user should only download 500KB and the changes should be done. This will save the user's Bandwidth. (Optional Suggestion) The "Check for Updates..." should be included in the Crash Reporter also so that update ...
