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 used to have the same problem with Firefox 0.9x using Windows XP SP1 and SP2:

When firefox is not in memory and I start it up, the page is loaded but not rendered. Only a white page is displayed. Also the bookmark toolbar is not displayed. Menu don't open and the search box drops down under the back-button instead of the search box.

When Using 0.9x this was a minor nuisance, because when I opened another window, everything was fine. Unfortunately with this preview a second window does not open.
