Alice "Alice0775" White has been a tremendous contributor for several years. Without Alice's tireless efforts testing, filing bugs and writing patches, Firefox 4 would not be the great browser that it is.

(via robcee, joedrew, tn, etc.)

Aleksej for helping to moderate the Firefox 4 FIXED bugday and for helping out before the event went live. Also, Steve Scott (:pxbugz) for verifying 45 fixes.

Product Status Updates

Firefox 4

Blocker Progress

  • Some people noticed that the Firefox Roadmap was updated recently
    • this is a draft document and is subject to change
    • the approach of the document is to indicate priorities, and work with engineering to determine which projects can be executed to meet those priorities
    • after Firefox 4, we are proposing moving to a "delivery train" model with more frequent releases to deliver new technology to users and the web more quickly

Firefox 3.6 and 3.5

3.6.14 and 3.5.17

  • Found what looks like to be a new crash regression during the beta period (bug 631105)
  • We will not be releasing the security updates tomorrow
  • We will be rebuilding today and plan to ship next Monday (2011-02-14)

Mobile Firefox
