Songbird iPod add-on deletes music - Update
Songbird, which was recently updated to version 1.1.1, allows add-ons to add extra features to the Mozilla-based media player. The iPod add-on, which has been downloaded over 280,000 times, is designed to allow users to play back and synchronise music between the Songbird library and the iPod itself. According to a blog post on the Songbird website, users should disable or un-install it for the time being. The add-on is still available on the Songbird site, but it has been removed from the list of recommended add-ons.
More information about the bug and any updates about the iPod add-on will be posted to their Bugzilla post.
Update (20/03/09): According to a Songbird blog post, the iPod add-on has now been updated to fix the iPod file deletion bug. Those users with the auto-update function enabled will automatically receive the update. Alternatively the updated add-on is available to download now from the Songbird site.
