Mozilla's Firefox 3.0b2 (Official) for OS/2 has been released

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service ++

From: Sander Nyman <>

Mozilla's Firefox 3.0b2 (Official) for OS/2 has been released. This is a
BETA release of Firefox 3, the next generation browser based on Mozilla's
Gecko 1.9 platform. It should be used for testing and feedback purposes
only. Take a moment to review the information and suggestions in the
README.TXT file included in the archive. Some Extensions (Add-ons) may not
yet be updated to work with Firefox 3. If you are looking to add new
Extensions, you can check the Add-ons site using the link below to see if
they are compatible with version 3.

You can download it here:

NOTE: This release requires the C runtime DLLs from Innotek. In the
unlikely event that you do not already have version 0.6.3 installed, it is
available with an installer here:

NOTE: This release requires IPLUGINW.DLL to use the Java and Flash
plugins. Available here:
or here:

NOTE: To have both Firefox, & Thunderbird in use at the same time (or ANY
other Mozilla app) they *MUST* be at the SAME version level, or a
mismatched DLL will still be in memory when you attempt to start a second
Mozilla based program. The easiest way to get around this limitation, and
use DIFFERENT version levels of Firefox, Thunderbird, Kompozer, etc., is
with Rich Walsh's Run! utility. It is tiny, and VERY easy to set up. To
make life even easier, I HIGHLY recommend that you download & use the
Internet Application Integration utility from Chuck McKinnis, which
actually contains the Run! utility, and sets it up for you, along with
coordinating your web browser with your email client for "mailto" links,
etc. You can find it here:

Or, if you'd rather do it yourself, here is the Run! utility:

Firefox themes (skins) are available here:
