Firefox 2 Beta 2 RC1Mozilla just placed Firefox 2 Beta 2 RC1 (Release Candidate 1) on their FTP server. If you haven’t had a chance to play with the new theme yet then this may be a good opportunity. Here are the download links:




I have also put together a portable version of the release candidate to make it a little easier to try. All you have to do is download the Firefox Portable file. Then you unzip the file and browse for the file FirefoxPortable.exe. Just execute that file and you will be running Firefox 2 Beta 2 RC1! The profile is kept with the FirefoxPortable folder so you don’t have to worry about messing up your other profile and the uninstallation process is simple…just delete the folder!

You may or may not like the new theme that Mozilla has implemented. You’ll have a better chance of liking it if you are running Windows XP with the Luna theme as compared to someone running Windows 2000 with the Classic Windows theme. There is already a really long list of bugs for the new Firefox theme so don’t be surprised if you find things wrong with it.
