  • Fixed: 274928 - Make it possible for apps, extensions, and vendors to all add tokens to the User-Agent string (using default preferences) without overwriting each other (general.useragent.extra.*).

  • Fixed regression: 273466 - Can't drag favicon from url bar into bookmark sidebar to create bookmark (since Aviary landing).

    The link for “Official Windows” is wrong.

  2. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    John – Fixed. Thanks for catching that quickly.

  3. michaell Says:

    The exciting canvas fix would be more exciting if it had actually made it into the Firefox installer builds – bug 293280

  4. Andrew Says:

    I donated $20 before I went to bed, and when I woke up there was already a new post. The “I want you to update The Burning Edge more often” checkbox on the donation form must really work!

  5. testboy Says:

    thanks for update on firefox development. keep up the great work!

  6. Nicholas Says:

    Woot! It’s back!

  7. pika unforgiven Says:

    great to see the burning edge back in action. with all these fixed vulnerabilities, i wonder how long it will be till the latest one at http://secunia.com/advisories/15292/ is going to be fixed.

    Anyone else have the problemt that the bookmark toolbar folder doesn’t display its bookmarks? Mac Version

  9. hemebond Says:

    It doesn’t load my bookmarks at all. I have bookmarks.file specified but it just doesn’t bother with it, nor does it load the default. There’s one message in the Javascript console about an extension being loaded and failing.

  10. hemebond Says:

    Okay, I’ve created a new profile and everything seems to be working great.

  11. Joey Says:

    yay! you’re baaaaaaacckkk!!!

  12. hemebond Says:

    It was the Developer Toolbar extension causing problems. No update available yet.

  13. MacD Says:

    Same probs here as Hemebond has. Unfortunately, WebDeveloper extension is one of main reasons I use Firefox, and I’m nothing without my bookmarks ;) So still using some 20th of April build.. (OS X 10.4.1 here..)
