Firefox 3.6 Beta Now Available for Download

The wait for the first Beta build of Firefox 3.6 is over. Mozilla has finally released Firefox 3.6 Beta 1 for download. This version is faster and more responsive than previous versions, and has been optimized to run on small device operating systems such as Windows CE and Maemo.

Firefox 3.6 Beta is built on Mozilla's Gecko 1.9.2 web rendering platform, which has been under development for several months and contains many improvements for web developers, Add-on developers and users. However I think this version has no Windows7 jumplist feature as expected.

This first revision of the Beta of Firefox 3.6 / Gecko 1.9.2 introduces several new features:

  1. Users can now change their browser’s appearance with a single click, with built in support for Personas.
  2. Firefox 3.6 will alert users about out of date plugins to keep them safe.
  3. Open, native video can now be displayed full screen, and supports poster frames.
  4. Support for the WOFF font format.
  5. Improved JavaScript performance, overall browser responsiveness and startup time.
  6. Support for new CSS, DOM and HTML5 web technologies.

Remember most Add-ons may not be compatible with Firefox 3.6 Beta. If you wish to test your Add-ons, please also download and install the Add-on Compatibility Reporter or use this tips.

Download Firefox 3.6 Beta 1 here (US en) / Other Languages.

Disable automatic Meta refresh/redirect of websites in browser for security reasons[how to]

Generally speaking, Meta refresh is a method used by some websites to instruct a web browser to automatically refresh/redirect the current web page after a given time interval. You can see this type of refresh/redirect especially in media sites. This is some times annoying or can be used for malicious purposes by redirecting you to a malicious site. If you don’t like this feature, you can disable this in your browser. Here is how to disable this in Internet Explore/Chrome, Firefox and Opera. Internet Explorer: Go to Tools - Internet options - Security tab - Custom Level button - Miscellaneous category - set "Allow Meta refresh" to Disable.

Alternatively you can use extension RefreshBlocker . Opera: Go to Preferences - Advanced - Network and uncheck "Enable automatic redirection".
