I have just received an email off Mozilla to announce the release of the 3rd beta version of Firefox 3.1 so thought i would post it on here in case anyone isnt signed up to the beta mailing list and wants to use the latest version.
Greetings to all of our great community testers – you are our most valuable resource. We now have *Firefox 3.1 Beta 3* available for testing. Note that this build is a beta and is intended for pre-release testing. We would like your help in testing the release and identifying any possible regressions or issues.
*_What to Test/Where to Get Builds_:*
(Note: If you are riding the “beta” channel, you can manually check for updates and update to this build). Otherwise you will have to download from the directory below.
Please hammer on these builds mercilessly to make sure that things work well! If you notice things that worked in Firefox 3.1 Beta 2 and do not work in this release, we would like to know about it right away.
_*Read the Release Notes*_
*Please also make sure to read the Release Notes which detail the known issues: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/3.1b3/releasenotes/
***_How to Report Feedback_:*
(1) File a bug in *https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/. *Note in the comment if it is a regression from a previous release. Things to remember when filing a bug:
(a) Always include the Build ID that you tested on. If you type about: in the URL bar, this will give you the Build ID.
(b) Always include clear Steps to Reproduce the bug
(c) Always check to see if your bug has already been filed. This link will help: http://tinyurl.com/2465be
(d) Use the regression keyword if it indeed a regression from a previous release.
(e) If you happen to crash, please include the Breakpad ID in the bug. You can get this by typing about:crashes in the URL bar.
(2) If you don’t wish to file a bug, report issues through http://feedback.mozilla.org or through the mozilla.feedback.firefox.prerelease newsgroup (also available on Google Groups). However, we prefer bugs as feedback is easier to track.
Thanks in advance to all of you for helping test Firefox and making it the browser of choice for millions of people all over the world! We are getting ever closer to the final release and thank you for your participation.
