If you have downloaded a branch build after August 25th, and installed it with the installer, you'll have to manually remove the following files in your searchplugin directory (otherwise the engines will appear doubled up): Amazon.com.png, Amazon.com.src, Dictionary.com.png, Dictionary.com.src, Yahoo.gif, Yahoo.src. (From pch's checkin comment for bug 257242.)

A patch to hide Firefox's "hidden window" from Exposé in Mac OS X 10.3 was checked in, fixing bug 223545. But this patch was backed out due to a regression it caused on Mac OS X 10.2 (bug 257647).

Draft Firefox 1.0 PR release notes have been posted.
