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 ;-)"

#72 finally, it works :-)

The connection problem wasn't related to FF. After fixing it, I was able to update extensions for the first time since the new Extension Manager. I did the trick Asa mentioned (unselect anything, the update). Now I am wondering whether it wasn't working because I was always trying to update individual extensions.

Great work although I would prefer to have an "Update All" button too. Most everyday users won't know the unselect trick (otoh, most users won't use extensions). However, I know that one more button would add clutter to the EM so I'm not sure about the best solution to this minor usability problem.
