Mozilla just released Firefox 3 Beta 5, the last beta release before Firefox 3 goes to "release candidate" status. It feels even faster than before, and includes over 750 fixes over Firefox 3 Beta 4. It's getting rave reviews. Progress, right?
As can be seen in the screenshot at right, however, Beta 5 introduced some problems, at least for me (Mac OS X 10.5.2). I like the back button. It's a great tool. Even so, I don't need three of them. I've been trying to find ways to flush this out of my browser but have failed.
I'm not complaining. It's beta software and I have 100 percent confidence that this will be fixed in the final release. But I'm still surprised to see a bug this glaring find its way into otherwise exceptional software.
The good news? Just by mentioning this I am certain I'll get a fix. That's the power of open source. Some of us know how to whine; others know how to fix. The fixers will take care of whiners like me.
