    Just FYI, there is a known bug in Firefox that prevents the status bar from being updated properly.

    No idea. But I assume that would be one of the steps they are taking to "solve the problem".

    1.1 Schedule Update

    In a move that I would hope should surprise exactly nobody, we're pushing back 1.1 by a little bit because of the realities of the work remaining to be done (I have a lot of patches that need to be landed, tested, bugfixed, there are other patches from other people to which the same applies; also we need a reasonable stabilization period and a resurrection of the l10n infrastructure in order to do a release of similar quality and range to 1.0.) Asa is working on an updated roadmap graphic, which will offer more details. The likely possibility is a 1.1 Developer Preview (= alpha, NOT for general consumption), followed by a 1.1 Preview Release (= beta, wider consumption, feature complete), followed by RCs and a 1.1. We're not fixed on dates yet, but this is just a heads up.

    We've got a lot in store for you all in the next week or so. First, I hope to have some Firefox 1.0.1 (security and stability update) candidate testing builds sometime between Friday and Tuesday (depending on when we get the last of the fixes landed.) If all goes well and this update tests out, we could have a Firefox and Thunderbird 1.0.1 update by the end of next week.

    We'll also be shipping an update for the stable Mozilla 1.7 application suite, likely to be called 1.7.6, about the same time as the 1.0.1s. This release would include primarly stability and security updates for Mozilla 1.7.x users. I expect we'll be supporting this stable branch with 1.7.x security and stability fixes for the next year or so.

    We're getting very close to having final bits for the Firefox 1.0.1 update and could use some help testing these candidate builds. The fixes were restricted to security and stability (and the security bugs haven't all been opened yet) so the main thing I'd like help with is making sure we didn't regress anything from 1.0.
    If you're the kind of person that likes testing nightly builds and you're not desperate for a lot of new features, I sure could use help trying to find any regressions.
