Firefox 3 beta 3 has been released

February 13, 2008 by

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service ++


February 12, 2008 Firefox 3 beta 3 has been released.

"This is a BETA release of Firefox 3, the next generation browser based on
Mozilla's Gecko 1.9 platform. It should be used for testing and feedback
purposes only. Take a moment to review the information and suggestions in
the README.TXT file included in the archive. Some Extensions (Add-ons) may
not yet be updated to work with Firefox 3. If you are looking to add new
Extensions, you can check the Add-ons site using the link below to see if
they are compatible with version 3."

please take note the ReadMe which lists the major OS/2 specific bugs:
and the Release Notes:

Requires a libc0.6.3 based version of the GCC runtime library.

The following helpful information is courtesy of Sander Nyman:

NOTE: This release requires the C runtime DLLs from Innotek. In the
unlikely event that you do not already have version 0.6.3 installed, it is
available with an installer here:

NOTE: This release requires IPLUGINW.DLL to use the Java and Flash
plugins. Available here:
or here:

NOTE: To have both Firefox, & Thunderbird in use at the same time (or ANY
other Mozilla app) they *MUST* be at the SAME version level, or a
mismatched DLL will still be in memory when you attempt to start a second
Mozilla based program. The easiest way to get around this limitation, and
use DIFFERENT version levels of Firefox, Thunderbird, Kompozer, etc., is
with Rich Walsh's Run! utility. It is tiny, and VERY easy to set up. To
make life even easier, I HIGHLY recommend that you download & use the
Internet Application Integration utility from Chuck McKinnis, which
actually contains the Run! utility, and sets it up for you, along with
coordinating your web browser with your email client for "mailto" links,
etc. You can find it here:

Or, if you'd rather do it yourself, here is the Run! utility:

Firefox extensions (add-ons) that add new functionality are available here:

Firefox themes (skins) are available here:
