Mozilla Releases Firefox 1.0 RC2

Thanks to smm5786 for the heads up

Mozilla has posted the second Firefox 1.0 release candidate on their FTP servers. This should be the last official release of Firefox before the big 1.0 launch date on November 9th.

The Firefox developers please ask that you look at the following areas:

Please test heavily:

  • site authentication (especially over SSL)

  • extension installation via update.mozilla.org and other sites.

  • the MacOS X builds, a number of theme changes have been made.

  • software update - we're making another attempt at this. We think we've got the bugs from RC1, so please test by following these instructions.

    Please continue to test:

  • the find toolbar

  • gecko and website rendering

  • migration from other browsers on first run

  • opening links in Firefox from external applications

  • focus interaction between tabs

    No changelog at time of writing.
