Mozilla’s developer community has released the second beta of Firefox 3.6 to fix 190 bugs in the original release. Moreover, all current Firefox 3.6 beta users have been issued an update containing improvements of interest to users as well as web and add-on developers.
The bug fixes released Tuesday include a mechanism to prevent incompatible software from crashing the browser, noted Firefox Director Mike Beltzner. However, Firefox 3.6 remains prerelease software, which means testers may encounter compatibility problems with some web sites and add-ons.
“Most add-ons have not yet been upgraded by their authors to be compatible with Firefox 3.6 Beta,” Beltzner cautioned.
