I tried Firefox 3 beta 4 just now, and there were
a few bugs that stood out in the first few minutes:
12305 Firefox 3 beta 4 font problem: colon displayed as 0038
unicode glyph-missing glyph
12306 Firefox 3 beta shows one-pixel-high black line when rendering some images
12307 firefox 3 beta 4 crash on some web pages
Youtube seemed slow and hangy on the first video I tried,
although it was fine in native firefox at the same
time; perhaps the Windows version of the flash plugin
is less resistant to network errors -- or Wine doesn't
support some network feature that only matters during
bad internet weather.
That same video was fine later, as was a different video
(both worth watching, btw).
It also output quite a few messages like
fixme:ntdll:NtLockFile I/O completion on lock not implemented yet
fixme:font:ExtTextOutW flags ETO_NUMERICSLOCAL | ETO_NUMERICSLATIN |
Firefox 3 rc1 will be out in May, and release will be in early June,
Given that a lot of people have in the past used windows Firefox
in wine to run native plugins, maybe we should get firefox 3
working well. Probably only five or six main issues.
