Firefox 3.0.4 (Official) for OS/2 Has Been Released

November 16, 2008 by Sander Nyman

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

From: Sander Nyman

Mozilla's Firefox 3.0.4 (Official) for OS/2 has been released. Firefox 3
is Mozilla's next generation web browser based on the Gecko 1.9 platform.
This release fixes several stability issues, and fixed 9 security issues,
including 4 rated critical and 2 rated high. Known problems in this
release include: "Media support is not yet activated on OS/2 so HTML5
and elements do not work". Printing to normal OS/2 printer
queues is disabled. Printing operations will instead create a PDF file.
PDF files can then be printed using Acrobat, GSview, or Lucide. For more
known problems, information and suggestions, take a moment to review the
README.TXT file included in the archive.

You can download it here:

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: 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:
