Firefox Pre-Preview Release Available for Testing

Saturday September 11th, 2004

Asa Dotzler writes "We took one more important change into the builds last night, moving from a blacklist to a whitelist for external protocol handlers, so today's builds are the new candidate 1.0PR builds. If all goes well with these builds, they'll become the official Firefox 1.0 Preview Release builds on Tuesday morning. Please help us test these bits and if you find any major regressions, please file bugs and nominate those as PR blockers with the bug flag "blocking-aviary1.0PR?" so that the Aviary team will see.

Download the 0.10 (1.0PR) candidate builds now: Windows installer Linux installer Mac disk image (Other formats can be found here.)

Note that this is not the final 1.0 Preview Release. That will happen on Tuesday if all goes well with the testing of these candidate builds. We appreciate any and all help testing the candidates and strongly encourage you to report any problems. Only you can prevent buggy releases ;-)"

#102 Tested on iMac

I downloaded Firefox 0.10 for my iMac with Mac OS X v10.1.5. It works fine, though a little slower than 0.9.3 and I hate the new skin. The old skin said "Hey I'm a special skin only avaible for the Mac version of Firefox!". This new one is basically a copy of the Windows theme, which says nothing. It also is now a lesser competitor to Safari; the before skin looked exactly like Safari's, a good thing for me since my OS X is too old for Safari. Now it's basically "Firefox for Windows" theme.
