        • Blocker bug 566103 which fixes about 5 or 6 other long-standing issues, too, has landed for Wednesday's nightly, just in time for alpha 5.
        • Also, bug 570532 has landed for this nightly build, giving some of the Firefox 4 testcases an a11y perf boost. Hopefully testing on Shaver's Tablet PC will confirm this, too.
        • We have one more perf bug, bug 541618 currently in review process which should also make a lot of things faster.
        • Firefox 3.6.4 is in good shape a11y-wise. There were no specific fixes, but OOPP works fine as it does in the Firefox 4 nightlies, too. No blocking issues from my end during the whole period.
