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'm really new to "posting" and "forums" so forgive me if this message is going in the wrong place....

I'm trying out the 1.0 pre preview from 9-11 and for the most part it seems to be running pretty solid for me.

As far as things I'm not doin' too well with...

I am not having much success getting themes working. I can't find the old Mozilla feature of opening up links in a new tab in the background. (In Mozilla you just press CTRL while hitting link) I also liked being able to CTRL-ENTER when typing in addresses in Mozilla and have it bring them up in a new tab. In Firefox if I do that it tries to add www/com to the address which is not something I'm attempting to do.

Are these things I'm just doing wrong or are they being removed permanently? They were something I loved that got me to switch from IE to Mozilla originally.
