Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.4 Release Candidate 3 Available

Wednesday May 16th, 2007

A third set of release candidate builds for the forthcoming Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.4 release are now available for testing. Testers can obtain these builds from the rc3 directory on ftp.mozilla.org. Any problems discovered by users can be posted to Firefox 2.0.0.4 Release Candidate 3 announcement on quality.mozilla.org. Currently in a pre-alpha state, the QMO site was launched last week to improve the community-based Mozilla quality assurance effort.

Firefox 2.0.0.4 is likely to be released simultaneously with Firefox 1.5.0.12, which will be the final release of the 1.5.0.x line before the Mozilla Corporation ends official support. As reported earlier, support for Firefox 1.5 has already been extended to make it possible for the remaining 1.5 users to upgrade to the latest Firefox 2 release via the built-in software update system.

Since I am using Firefox 2.0.0.3 it takes an awful long time for this program to start up. I am also using Internet Explorer 7; this program starts up in a few seconds, Firefox takes as much as 5 minutes or more! How about your new version?

You obviously have something seriously borked on your system if Firefox takes five minutes to start up! Starting any browser shouldn't take any more than a few seconds. Try creating a new profile.

My startup time is less than 5 seconds. Some firewall or virus protection or some other scanning system is delaying this much.

re-creating the Firefox profile from scratch seems to make Firefox 2.x load faster along with disabling antivirus and firewall programs. this has worked for me.

btw - schapel, I've tested firefox 2.0.0.4 RC3 on my WinXP SP2 Home ed machine and so far no problems.

#5 Issue on FireFox 2.0.0.4(WinXP)

Hi,

I have an application running on Mozilla Firefox 1.0.2. In an abstract, the application receives the button click from the user and issues the suitable command to the web server through socket calls.The functions for the button click events are defined using JavaScript. The above setup works fine on Mozilla Firefox 1.0.2 version. But when I upgraded my browser to 2.0.0.4, I started facing problems. I noticed that the request from the browser to the web server is not happening.And in the JavaScript console I get error messages for the defined functions. As a result of which I am not able to handle user requests. Please let me know if something has changed in the recent versions of Mozilla Firefox in the way it handles JavaScripts? Also are there any browser security issues which is preventing my application from communicating to Web server?

Thank you, Rekha
