Yep, links now give out the RC instead of the beta 12. But it's the same one that's been out on a few sites since the 4-5th, so people could have been running it since then.

Is this release going to be 32 bit only or is a 64 bit coming?

32-bit only for Firefox 4 although there are nightly builds available in 64-bit, I think Mozilla are going 64-bit with Firefox 5 going by the link below

This is great. I just wish it performed as well on my MAC as my PC. I mean, that is the point to me - a browser I can use on windows or MAC platforms. As much as I like Firefox, I may be going to Chrome as my main browser- it performs well on both. I will probably use a mixture.

does anyone else get this error in RC1 when typing a word in the URL bar so it loads your default search engine? eg open new tab > type sevenforums (so it opens in google) > enter > error appears

Firefox can't find the file at jar:file:///C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/omni.jar!/chrome/en-US/locale/browser-region/region.propertiessevenforums.

i dont have the ask toolbar or vuze/azurues

making a new profile/deleted old profile doesn't make a difference

i also cleared appdata, roaming and local mozilla folders

edit - i have gone back to minefield 4.0 13pre beta and it works :S
