Product Status Updates

Firefox 4

  • Firefox 4 Beta 10 is on its way, currently in QA validation
    • Everyone really dug deep to get this turned around quickly, including work on weekends. If you see someone who helped, hug them.
  • As of this morning, 88 hard blockers remain, overall.
    • 50 of these require beta coverage, so beta 10 will not be our last beta

Firefox 3.6 and 3.5

  • We have builds of Firefox 3.6.14 and 3.5.17 as of Friday night
    • Thanks to everyone that landed blockers, we got pretty great last-minute convergence
    • Plan to go to beta on 2011-01-26, though it depends on QA signoff
  • "Scary" update dialog for 3.0 users went live last Tuesday
    • We will be assessing the impact this week

Mobile Firefox

  • Wrapping up beta 4


  • Messaging team at an all-hands meeting this week
    • no one from the team on this call
    • so, updates are below:
  • Miramar Alpha 2 has shipped; please give it a try and help us out by providing feedback!
  • 3.1.8 on the verge of shipping, if it hasn't by the time you read this.
  • No weekly Thunderbird status call this week; regular calls resume next week



The limit is 3 minutes per speaker. It's like a lightning talk, but don't feel that you have to have slides in order to make a presentation.
