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 strongly disagree with your suggestion that find-as-you-type should be put back as default ON. I'm sure you would also agree if YOUR bank had a Java login app that often cause the FAYT-function to print your password in cleartext in the bottom bar of the browser instead of in ***-format in the passwordbox you had selected.

Ie consequences a) Default off - some people might never find it b) Default on - some people might have their bankaccounts cleaned out becuse someone saw their password in cleartext

It would be insane to choose b over a
