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 ;-)"

Hehe, what is File Roller anyway? I havn't had probs unpacking tars in any of the filemanagers I've used under Linux.

In any case, this is as valid under Windows as under Linux. It's highly irritating that FF comes with a predetermined default for where to save files instead of a "ask first time" behaviour. It's perfectly OK that the default location to choose is set to desktop, but one doesn't even know where things get saved until you chase around in the Options settings.
