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 ;-)"

A few people said that the FireFox icon looks suboptimal.

By accident my computer switched to 256 colors, and I can see much better that it looks like a lizard. Even a hand is clearly visible with a contrasting border. Now either that is an old image selected for 16x16x16 mode, or it means that the firefox icon should, IMHO, IANAA, be made a bit more like the low-color version with stronger reds, yellows and a border/shadow for the hand.

Now I don't know why it has a lizard and is named firefox, but I like the lizard, it needs less resolution to be readable.

I hope there'll be default icon for the bookmark stuff, i just added a yellow exclamation mark to make my own icons for bookmark window that way.
