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 ;-)"


#59 Popup on close tab not blocked the first time

I just found that I'm getting a popup when I close a tab for the first time. Subsequent closing of tabs with the same URL are blocked or are not requested.

Could someone confirm this to see if this is a problem for others?

Start Firefox: Ensure Popup blocking is enabled and <http://my.finance.lycos.com/> is not in the allowed list Load <http://my.finance.lycos.com/> Create a new tab (Ctrl-T) Set the <http://my.finance.lycos.com/> tab as the active tab Close the tab containing <http://my.finance.lycos.com/>

I'm seeing a popup displayed for: <http://news.lycos.com/news/headlines.asp?etc>...

If I do this again without restarting the browser the popup is not displayed (I don't think it was requested because I do not get the "blocked popup" icon in the status bar.)
