Firefox 3.0.x Releases
- shipping to beta today
- final release targeting June 4
- aiming for mid-July release
- Support/Firefox3.5:Forumthreads -- Still seeing some cookies with sqlite issues -- eagerly awaiting updating to newest sqlite.
- Uptick in keyword.URL hijacking (Ask.com AND Yoog). Yoog also uses a user.js file to keep its changes in place even after resetting and also affects the search bar searches. Ask.com has a toolbar that at intervals (or maybe just once) resets keyword.URL. Do we have people to talk to at either company?
