Firefox 3 Release Candidate 2 Available Now
Mozilla released Firefox 3 RC2 yesterday, and since they were right on schedule, we might still get to see the final Firefox 3 being released by the end of this month. Mozilla FTP already had a file named Firefox 3 RC2, but who knows they might make some last minute changes and tweaks, so it’s always better to wait till they don’t announce on the official site.
There is nothing new in RC2 to talk about. No new features have been added. They are only focusing on fixing the bugs from RC1 and improving its performance. Read the release notes to see what bugs they have fixed.
Installing Firefox 3 will overwrite your existing installation of Firefox on Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows. For all systems, you won’t lose any of your bookmarks or browsing history, but some of your extensions and other add-ons might not work until updates for them are made available.
Even if you try to remove this version, none of your bookmarks, web browsing history, extensions or other add-ons will be removed. All this data is stored in your profile. But it’s always better to make a backup of your Firefox profile before installing an update.
