Mozilla QA Announces First Firefox 3.5 Security Test Friday

It was just a few days ago that the Mozilla Foundation released the final version of Firefox 3.5 to the awaiting masses of fans. Now the Mozilla QA (quality assurance) team is announcing that on the 10th of July, not this Friday but the one after that, a test event will be held with the goal of uncovering any security vulnerabilities that are hiding in Firefox 3.5.

Mozilla QA’s Anthony Hughes explains: “I'm here to inform you that we're going to be holding a testday event on Friday, July 10th, from 7AM - 5PM PDT (next week). It'll be a day completely devoted to testing Firefox 3.5 Security. There's going to be a lot of fun in our usual #testday channel. What we're really looking for is people to run through our security test case suite in Litmus. These tests have recently been updated and new tests have been created for Firefox 3.5. Anyone that finds a *new* blocker bug or is our "toptester" (runs the highest amount of litmus testcases) for the day will be rewarded with a really cool MozQA shirt.”

The latest nightly build of Firefox 3.5 RC is available for download here.

In related news, it seems that Firefox 3.5 is a real hit with users all over the world. At the time of writing this article, the number of Firefox 3.5 downloads at a worldwide level exceeded the 7 million mark (7,374,815 to be more precise). You can see how much that number has grown via Mozilla’s Worldwide Real-time Firefox Downloads site here.

To my mind, there’s no wonder why people are rushing to get Firefox 3.5 when it comes with such great features like Private Browsinf Mode, downloadable font, undo closed windows, tab tearing, location awareness, native JSON support, and so on (fill list of features here). And I did not even mention that it is the fastest Firefox version ever, way faster than Firefox 2.0 and Firefox 3.0.

If you would like to get Firefox 3.5, a download location is available here.
If you would like to get Firefox in your local language, choose the appropriate version here.
