Firefox 4.0 has been pushed even further back into 2011, after Mozilla confirmed a consistent delay for the next generation of its open source browser in the second half of October 2010.
After it announced the postponing of Firefox 4.0, the browser vendor updated the Beta release schedule
. Looking at the dates planed by Mozilla, it is clear that the project has slipped yet again, and that customers will have to wait even longer to get the final version of Firefox 4.0
For example, Firefox 4.0 Beta 8 should have already been delivered at the end of the past week, on November 12, 2010. This is clearly not the case, especially since early adopters have just received Firefox 4.0 Beta 7 for testing
Beyond Beta 8, Mozilla has two more Beta development milestones lined up, both planned for release by the end of 2010.
At this point in time, the open source browser vendor is looking to offer Firefox 4.0 Beta 8 in November, or in early December at the latest.
