Firefox 4 RC expected to ship roughly on March 9


There’s light at the end of the tunnel.
Mozilla is planning to spin the first release candidate for Firefox 4 this Friday and the code is aimed to be released to beta testers as early as next Wednesday, March 9, developers said during a call today.
It’s a major milestone. The first of 12 beta test versions of Firefox 4 was made available last June.
Of course, the RC could be available earlier if Quality Assurance signs off faster than expected. Beta 12, for instance, was made available last Friday, a few days before the expected date.
It is the first release candidate and a number of bugs have yet to be worked out but the team expects to ship the final Firefox 4 this month.
A number of printing issues were reported following the release of beta 12 late last week but those problems have been largely fixed, one developer said during a meeting today.

Thats with 3 add-ons running, forgot that I had them installed actually, will check usage without them later as I'm on another computer ATM

Also looks like they've blocked DL of the candidate RC1 builds for now.
