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.
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 agree with this. On some internet cafe's, the desktop is hidden. I actually wondered why Firefox started downloading without asking me where to put it, and then I couldn't find it. I then discovered that the default is to put it in the desktop. From then on, this is always the first setting I change whenever I install Firefox.
I suggest, "My Documents" for Windows and "~" for Linux.
