Firefox 4.0 and SeaMonkey-2.1 Beta 3 for OS/2 released

April 15, 2011 by wuno@lsvw.de

Howdy,


Firefox-4.0 final is available at:
releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/4.0/contrib/firefox-4.0.en-US.os2.zip

The latest (and presumably last) Beta of SeaMonkey:
releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/seamonkey/releases/2.1b3-real/contrib/seamonkey-2.1b3.en-US.os2.zip

Be sure to download and carefully _read_ the new Readmes:


releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/4.0/contrib/firefox-4.0.en-US.os2.README


releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/seamonkey/releases/2.1b3-real/contrib/seamonkey-2.1b3.en-US.os2.README



Two points from the Readme are very important to mention
1)
======================================================================
=========
-- Compatibility Warning
------------------------------------------------------
======================================================================
=========


After using Firefox v4.x (SeaMonkey-2.1b3), your History and Cookies
databases (places.sqlite
and cookies.sqlite) will NOT be compatible with Firefox v3.x
(SeaMonkey-2.0.x). However, a
REXX script is available to restore compatibility.


* To preserve compatibility:
- download 'dbrestore.zip' from
ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/incoming/mozilla/dbrestore.zip
or
e-vertise.com/warpzilla/dbrestore.zip
- unzip it into your profile directory
- make backups of places.sqlite and cookies.sqlite


* To restore compatibilty BEFORE running Firefox v3.x:
- run the script from your profile directory.


* To restore compatibilty AFTER running Firefox v3.x
(i.e. you forgot to run the script before):
- look for 'places.sqlite.corrupt' and 'cookies.sqlite.corrupt' in
your
profile directory, If they appear to be the right size, remove
the
'.corrupt' extension after deleting the newly-created versions.
- run the script
- if your history and cookies aren't restored, use your backup
copies.


2)
* Exceptq - Crash Reporting
If the app crashes, Exceptq will beep and then create an exception
report containing details of the crash. You can send these
reports to the developers at .


The Exceptq app and dlls can be downloaded here:
hobbes.nmsu.edu/h-search.php



Please, to be on the safe side, backup your profiles _before_ using
the new versions.


Get them as long as they're still fresh ;-)
