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 ;-)"

The URL bar appearing in pop-ups is a deliberate change, so that it's harder for sites to create popup windows containing a fake URL bar and mislead people into thinking they are on a different site. This is discussed above - <http://www.mozillazine.or…back.html?article=5264#24> . The UI is still being discussed, so it may in future be made less annoying to get rid of it on windows that you trust and don't want it showing for.

Not sure about the theme thing - sounds like it may be an issue the author needs to fix, or it might be that your own profile has got messed up somehow.
