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 ;-)"

#108 empty tab from closing tabs too quickly

This has bothered me for awhile, even using 0.9x. Recently I have been using quite a few nightlies, but the latest are the 1.0PR (0.10) that appeared on Sept. 1 and now the Sept. 11 build.

If I have a few tabs open, and then I use the close button on the right side to close them quickly, somtimes it creates a new, empty tab and shifts focus to it. It it is almost like what happens when double-clicking an empty part of the tab bar to create a new tab, however it happens when clicking the close button. It is a little annoying because somtimes I am skimming through a set of images in tabs in order, but then it happens and jumps me to the end of the sequence.

Anyone else get this?
