Firefox 3.1 Beta 3 Test Day, Mozilla Wants Your Input
Article by George Norman

The development process of Firefox 3.1 has not been an easy one, being plagued with numerous blockers and issues that forced Mozilla to keep the software in Beta for a longer period that originally planned. Just as Mike Shaver said back in February, when he announced an upcoming Beta 4, Firefox 3.1 Beta 3 is ready to be released and as such a Test Day has been scheduled.

“MozQA is holding a Testday for the rollout of Firefox 3.1 Beta 3 on Thursday and we need your awesome testing skills to make sure its as great as it possible can be! Our community representatives will be available through IRC Chat ( channel #qa and #testday on irc://irc.mozilla.org ) as well as through the QMO forums to help with any of your questions/comments/suggestions,” said Mozilla QA.

This would be the third test event this year and will be dedicated to the sole purpose of putting Firefox 3.1 Beta 3 through its paces and uncovering any remaining bugs. Some have pointed out their confidence that there will not be any bugs to uncover since Mozilla took its time with this release (or were they being sarcastic about the long development process). Speaking of the Firefox 3.1 development process, the next Beta release, which will be slated for the middle of April (code freeze on April 6, release on April 14) might not tagged Firefox 3.1, but Firefox 3.5.

Those of you interested in getting Firefox 3.1 Beta 3 and putting it through its paces must be made aware of the two different means of downloading it. The simplest method would be to click Help -> Check for Updates in Firefox 3.1 Beta 2 (if you have it installed on your machine). If not, you could always download it externally here.

“I’m glad we’re done with beta 3 and we’ll continue to work out issues with TraceMonkey and other things but we need to keep the focus on driving blockers down. It feels like we’re taken the foot off the gas,” said Firefox Director, Mike Beltzner.
