    Firefox 5 Beta Just Around the Corner


    Forget Firefox 4.0, the first Beta development milestone for the next iteration of Mozilla’s open source browser is just around the corner.

    The browser vendor is confirming that Firefox 5 Beta is right on track for delivery in as little as one week.

    If all goes well, Firefox 5 will graduate from the Aurora channel to Beta on May 17th, 2011.

    “Official cutover to Beta is May 17th, 2011,” the company stated. “There are 6 key bugs we are tracking that have to be dealt with prior to May 17th. They will either be resolved or we will decide they are not severe enough to block the merge.”

    Firefox 5 hitting Beta this soon after the release of Firefox 4.0 is illustrative of Mozilla’s commitment to speeding up considerably the development and release pace of new major versions of its open source browser.

    Essentially, end users should expect Firefox 6 to drop just six weeks after Firefox 5 and every other new Firefox version six weeks after that.

    As early as next week, early adopters will get to play with the first Beta of Firefox 5.

    I'll be anxious to see how FF 5 works. I used FF exclusivley for years, during the IE 7 and 8 era, and was very happy with it. I tried FF 4 briefly and went back to 3.6. I'm now using Windows 8 7955 with IE 9 installed and don't even have FF installed on this drive. Things change...I now use Win 8 and IE 9 all the time.

    It says IE 9 version 9.0.7955.0. IE 9 wouldn't lie to me, would it?...

Firefox and Youtube bugs, or is it just Firefox?
It started a while back, but now it's getting annoying. Anytime I download from a site, like a picture or media file (music, etc.), it downloads it fully, no question, but it still says it is still downloading even when you can see the current state such as 40.7MB out of 40.7MB completed. Weirdly...

Window Blinds Beta + Firefox issue
I'm running the trial for Windows Blinds and while it looks good, I've noticed Firefox fails to start. All other browsers, including waterfox - work well. Anyone else using Windows Blinds and have any issues? I've noticed the app tends to crash itself as bit as well.
