- Plugins are now painted asynchronously on Windows. This could make performance and responsiveness on slow computers a lot better. bsmedberg wants testing from nightly-users. (bug 596451).
- In Firefox 4 beta 7 users on MacOS 10.5 (Leopard) cannot submit crash reports, and all crashes appear to be hangs/unresponsive Firefox. (bug 599475).
Questions and Concerns
- SUMO - any word on when the Firefox menu will be finalized on all platforms? Basically I'm trying to figure out when we can confidently update support articles. Will this be possible before RC?
