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

April 15, 2011 by


Firefox-4.0 final is available at:

The latest (and presumably last) Beta of SeaMonkey:

Be sure to download and carefully _read_ the new Readmes:

Two points from the Readme are very important to mention
-- 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 '' from
- 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
profile directory, If they appear to be the right size, remove
'.corrupt' extension after deleting the newly-created versions.
- run the script
- if your history and cookies aren't restored, use your backup

* 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:

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

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