Product Status Updates

Firefox Desktop

Speaker Location: Phone (johnath)

  • Migration week!
  • Tomorrow 8 goes out the door, Beta becomes 9, Aurora becomes 10, Nightly becomes 11
    • Remember: 8 has a bunch of smarts around third-party add-ons, including some new UI, so even with beta behind us we’re gonna hear some surprise and learn a lot in the first 24 hours.
    • But we think it means our add-on compatibility story will get a lot better (and maybe our user experience, too, for many users!)
    • Firefox 3.6.24 is going out the door tomorrow as well
    • Firefox 3.6.x → Firefox 8 advertised update is currently planned for 2011-11-17

Firefox Android

Speaker Location: Phone (toronto)

  • Holy crap the birch builds of Native UI for Android are getting excellent.
    • Tabbed browsing
    • awesome bar
    • preferences
    • save as PDF
    • a new panning/zooming patch landing soon
    • and all of it needs your help testing


Speaker Location: (No voice update)

  • It’s migration week for us, just like Firefox!
  • Crowd testing event during next week – details are on the tb-testers mailing list. if you want to participate – shout an email to
  • Lightning 1.0 being released tomorrow!


Speaker Location:
