    I’m confused. I would like to run the nightly’s for Firefox 2.0 but these are for Firefox 3.0? The only build for Firefox 2.0 that I know of is that alpha1 version…

  2. Dao Says:

    You can get the latest nightly builds for Fx2.0 there, Ferdinand:

  3. Minh Nguyá»…n Says:

    Work on future versions usually starts on the trunk before the branch version is even released. So while everyone’s working on getting Firefox 2.0 out the door, we’re already going to have some work done for 3.0.

    What RSS reader are you using with Firefox Trunk builds? Sage doesn’t work and the others listed on addons.mozilla.org aren’t compatible with Firefox 1.6 (now 3.0).
