FIXED: UK English version of Guide was missing the Help file for the web
browser, this is now included. (Bug #20186)

web browser. At high magnification levels, on specific websites, the web
browser was unable to navigate to an item that was off the top of the screen

FIXED: The web browser couldn't download anything if the Adobe updater was
active. If detected, the Adobe updater app will close when Guide is active.
(Bug #19908)

visiting a website with malformed JavaScript.
