Well mine just automagically updated to FF 4.0 final. So....there you are.
Here is another download link. My release says Firefox 4 no RC 1 or 2 is mention in the about Firefox section.
So they decided RC2 is good enough for release and signed it as final.
Or they forgot to rename/delete that 'old' file when they decided to release it as RC2, which is more likely.
In case of doubt, please follow the official releases link:
Just a helpful hint for anyone missing the status bar: Download the Firefox addon "Status-4-Evar" and mess with its options a bit, and make sure to enable the Addon Bar in Firefox (View->Toolbars->Addon Bar).
Firefox 4 is up on the Mozilla FTP servers....it's official release isn't until tomorrow.
Yep.. the file is legit and the Official release - Mozilla just hasn't updated it's front page and so on to display with it. They are however right on with tracking the downloads of it to break their own record and for sure over come IE9's download amount.
Even Dailytech did a write up on it with the exact same links to download this final version.
According to Mozilla Wiki, the official release is scheduled for March 22.....
Confirmed. The program itself is 4.00 final. What leads to confusion is that the "what's new" page still says RC, but that's just the page, not the browser.
After the update to how the status bar works in FF4 I don't see a need to permanently plaster it there when it isn't giving you any information.
Anyone else figure out how to have GPU acceleration without blurring all the text or messing it up on an ATI card?
just wait till its official released and FF will automatic notify you
Meh, I'm still sticking with Chrome.
+1, I set this FF up properly how I'd use it and tried to get on with it but pages load so much slower than in Chrome :/
It is Official.. has been since I posted this thread. They signed off on the release and uploaded it. Only thing is they haven't replaced certain re-direct pages to say otherwise.
Here are all the official links for various languages:
I love Status 4 ever, downloaded it the other day. It bugged the HELL out of me not to have it there for some reason.
If you referred to the status bar, check Options/Addon bar (strangely it is disabled by default). I had to do that to use HTML Validator as before.
can it be updated from rc to final? Or do i have to download the final and reinstall it?
