Mozilla Firefox 3.0.1 Released

A new version of Firefox 3 has been released to address some bugs in the browser. There is also an update for 2.0 versions of the browser for people who haven’t bothered to upgrade.

Of primary concern are the following:

  • MFSA 2008-36 – Crash with malformed GIF file on Mac OS X
  • MFSA 2008-35 – Command-line URLs launch multiple tabs when Firefox not running
  • MFSA 2008-34 – Remote code execution by overflowing CSS reference counter

IOS: Save Running Configuration for Startup

I have my hands on a Cisco IOS based router, so I thought it time to place probably one of the most important commands you will use with an IOS based device on my site.

copy running-config startup-config

The above command copies the configuration that is currently being used/run by the router into the non-volatile memory (NVRAM). The running-config is basically what is sitting in RAM, if the power goes out it’s wiped. NVRAM is were we store this config for use when the router is started, reset, or when the power fails.

This is one of the area’s were Cisco equipment differs from your average Customer-premises equipment (CPE) gear. This can bite you in the ass if you haven’t dealt with it before.
