FF6 & Browsing Protection

Should we expect 2 weeks before update become available?

On the other hand Firefox must be doing something really silly with the latest releases,  first pulling ver 4 after couple of weeks later, then switching to rapid release cycle so ver 5 lasted barely 8 weeks

Re: FF6 & Browsing Protection

No, you do not need to wait:

There's a new browsing protection release candidate available

This release contains support for Firefox 6 (beta)

The visible version string is "F-Secure Browsing Protection SW Update 2011-08-08_01"

The update is distributed through the policy manager which has been configured as specified in the instruction page: http://www.f-secure.com/en_EMEA-Labs/beta-programs/business-users-beta/beta-update-channel/instructi...

Manual installation packages for all current release candidates are available as follows:

on windows:
for 9-series in http://download.f-secure.com/latest/beta/fsdbupdate9.exe

The executables are self-installing on a system with the appropriate F-secure client. These manual installation packages also contain other engines we currently have in a release candidate state, which are due to production later.

For any feedback regarding the update or the beta program, please send them through corp-beta@f-secure.com

Thanks and Best Regards:
F-Secure Labs

Best Regards!

Re: FF6 & Browsing Protection

:) not bad .

Any chance F-secure team could work closer with Mozilla and try to get compatible components for F-secure closer to the official FF release.

Re: FF6 & Browsing Protection

A release cadidate 10 days before Firefox RTM is still not good enough?

 

I would not like to sit on that chair, when FF changes something and BP breaks Firefox.

Re: FF6 & Browsing Protection

Does this also apply to Firefox 7.0 Beta 1, which was released yesterday (August 17th)?
