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 ;-)"

#89 FAYT issue, and Basic Style again

I found a bug with Find As You Type... If I press ' to make it work, it won't work if the first character I press next is a vowel. This because on my keyboard (and many other non-English ones) typing ' + a is converted to (by software, not hardware, it is dependant on regional settings). Pressing ' + space solves this, but it's awkward. In effect, I'm just using / for FAYT now, but that one does a full text search instead of only on links.

Asa: I don't know if you noticed my reply to my earlier message... "Asa: no, that's the problem... I understand that it's not in the style icon's menu anymore, but I'm afraid that they accidentally took it out of the View / Page Style menu as well." (about Basic Style)

Anyways, great release. Much improvement since 0.9. 1.0 will be great ^_^.
