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 ;-)"

#49 empty group & where is basic styles?

Two things:

1. In the installer, if I tell it to not create a Programs folder group, it will create an empty group.

2. 'Basic Style' is gone! I don't understand... For clarity, Basic Style != No Style. If there are named styles present (with title=), basic style is still a valid option... Basic style is (or should be) the style which contains the basic and common styles for a page. If I have a technical document (which I do), where I want to indicate negative logic with an overline, I have a <span class="neg"> in it. The style which defines the overline is part of my basic style sheet (and essential to the /meaning/ of the document). No style is bad, it is a 'hack' (well...) for sites which don't have a good basic stylesheet :). If anyone could point me to the bug where this was removed... maybe I could see the reason behind it.
