  • Fixed: 335306 - Inline spellchecking for textareas.
  • Fixed: 337178 - Add "search suggestions" feature (autocomplete to common searches, at least for Google and Yahoo, instead of user's search history).
  • Fixed: 328154 - Restore session when restarting for application update restart or recovering from crash.
  • Fixed: 337770 - Upgrade to NSS 3.11.2 pre-release. This gives Firefox support for TLS Server Name Indication.

    has anyone done benchmarks for before and after nsIThreadManager was implemented?

    It would be fun to have list with most popular bugs.
    I mean like “Bug of the Week” and “Bug of the Month”. With comments disabled.

    Though this seems rather obvious, can we safely assume that session restore is going into Firefox 2.x (Branch 1.8.x) AND Firefox 3.x (Trunk 1.9.x)? I certainly hope so, as that alone might make it worthy of a full major version bump.

    Would still like to see FAYT working in user input textareas….
    Wish I were a good enough coder to figure out how to do it myself.
