Firefox-8.0b6, Thunderbird-8.0b5 and Seamonkey-2.5b3 betas

November 11, 2011 by wuno@lsvw.de

Hi,



Due to the fast release cycles we were missing v7 of Firefox and Thunderbird and v2.4 of Seamonkey. Now, we try to keep up with v8 and v2.5, respectively.

The cairo graphics engine and the preferences backend were overhauled.  As a consequence we had to change quite a few lines within the new printing code from Rich Walsh. In limited testing those changes seem to not introduce new bugs. However, we need more brave testers before we will decide whether or not v8.0 GA versions can be realized. So please test these beta versions and report here. 

Due to an unexpected restriction I could not upload firefox-8.0b6 to the mozilla ftp server. Therefore, you can get it from netlabs:
ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/incoming/mozilla/firefox-8.0b6.en-US.os2.zip
Thunderbird and Seamonkey betas can be downloaded from mozilla
ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/nightly/8.0b5-candid
ates/build1/contrib/thunderbird-8.0b5.en-US.os2.zip
ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/seamonkey/nightly/2.5b3-candidat
es/build1/contrib/seamonkey-2.5b3.en-US.os2.zip


You should be able to use them on existing profiles. However, it is prudent to make a backup of your profile before or create a new one.
