Windows 7: Firefox 4.0 Beta 7 Just Around the Corner

Firefox 4.0 Beta 7 Just Around the Corner

Quote:

The wait, and it has been quite a wait, is almost over for the seventh Beta release of Firefox 4.0. However, early adopters will need to exercise their patience a tad longer, as Mozilla refines the release.

Ahead of October 26th, 2010, the open browser vendor still had to resolve a total of 11 blockers that were preventing the release of Firefox 4.0 Beta 7.

And while it sounds like most of the work is done, fact is that the bugs need to be fixed, and this has to happen without causing any regression issues, which will only cause further delays for the development milestone which was supposed to be launched over a month ago.

“Of those 11 bugs, 2 are fixed on TraceMonkey, 2 are waiting Checkin, 3 are tracking a single issue (JSD & Firebug), and 2 are tracking items. That leaves only two items (a common crash in @ JSString::flatten() and partial incompatibility with the JetPack SDK) to be resolved, and progress is being made.

“Any help on those remaining two issues would be greatly appreciated,” revealed Mozilla’s director of Firefox, Mike Beltzner.

Back in September 2010, somewhere between Beta 6 and Beta 7 the Firefox 4.0 project was serious derailed.

For some reasons I'm not fond using the beta (firefox). >.<

Incompatibility with addons, slowdown etc and so many problems.

I do hope they improve the memory leak/usage problem.

Same here. This is the first beta program where ive reverted back to a released version.

My biggest issue was not keeping me logged in on certain web forums. None of my other browsers suffer from this, not even IE9

Word...
I downloaded it and as said, incompatible add ons, etc. (I know, it's beta) but once you get used to how well Firefox can work with a few simple add ons, it's like you're being punished without them...LOL.

The bigger problem is when I removed it, my 3.6 install went screwy. Had to redownload, reinstall add ons, etc. Good thing I use the sync service for book marks, etc.

Is anyone here using this release? I believe that as the Beta number increases in value the number of crashes should drop in direct proportion to that increase. Mozilla has found a way to increase the number of crashes with every Beta release. Mozilla should focus more on their main product and...
