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 ;-)"

I have not tried a nightly really since .93, so I had no idea there would be anything except but fixes.

The new RSS feed stuff is AWESOME.

The new search I'm not sure about, I've only played with it for 60 seconds, but I'm willing to give it a spin. It seems cool in concept.

I do have one concern. I got really confused about a cookie manamgent setting in privacy. I almost lost my cool thinking the feature was removed. See the bug I filed <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=259208>. It would be ineteresting to know if anyone else was confused or if this tired guy just needs some sleep.
