Firefox beta 4 released

Post by Guzzi »

*bww bitwise works GmbH progress update March 10, 2015

This is the fourth beta release of Firefox for eCS (OS/2) version 24. It
contains some UI fixes (makes the "Clear Recent History" dialog and most
recent sites' thumbnails on the new tab canvas work again) and makes
XUL.DLL finally loadable into high memory.. Also this release uses the
new GCC runtime (version 4.9.2) which significantly reduces the size of
executables and DLLs and the memory footprint of the running application
(by about 5-6 megabytes).

< ... HANGES.OS2>
file contains more detailed list of changes.

< ... README.OS2>
file contains software requirements and detailed installation instructions.



If you find a bug (which is likely), please create an issue at the
issues page <>.
But before you create a new issue, be sure it is not already
reported by searching through the existing ones using the Search
field at the top of this page.


When Firefox crashes it creates a trap report that may contain
useful information for the developers. These reports are saved in
|.TRP| files created in the directory where |firefox.exe| is
installed. By default these reports contain only basic information.
In order to make them even more useful (and therefore make a fix for
your problem much more likely) please do the following:

* Install the latest EXCEPTQ runtime from
<> (currently, this
< ...>
is the latest).
* Install the Firefox symbol files by downloading the
|| archive from the link below and unzipping it to
the same directory where you installed Firefox.
* Make Firefox crash again and attach the resulting |.TRP| file to
the issue describing your problem.

Bitte auch die Pressemeldung von uns lesen, weil bei der ersten Meldung an Newsgruppen leider Fehler drin waren.
