Man, I just upgraded to 25.0.1 a few days ago (making sure my PC was stable after problems).  These guys are upgrade happy. ;)

Every six weeks :)https://wiki.mozilla.org/Features/Release_Tracking

 

with the exception of the next update which i think is 8 due to mozilla's hoilday or some such thing.

Some comments about update to 26. (In particular the removal of the downloads progress bar)

What is it they are complaining has been removed? I still get a progress bar in the taskbar button, still a progress bar on the download button, what progress bar has gone???

the new cache back end may be getting preffed on by default in nightly (experimentally) in the next few days. A few bugs related to it were closed out today, so I think it may be nearing completion.

If you're able to, provide piriform with helpful advice on this one; that way we don't have a repeat of what's happening on chrome of late ;)

Already taken care of, ccleaner natively handles the current working directory. I'm not sure if it will change (it's currently cache2) but I'll definitely give a heads up if it does.

 

Granted, I dropped the ball on the JSON conversions.

Firefox engineering management met today to make a decision on if Australis should uplift to Aurora on the 29 train, or wait one more cycle to ride the 30 train. On the balance of the arguments, the decision was made to uplift.

 

This means:

 

* After uplift next week[1], Australis will be on both the Nightly channel (aka Firefox 30) and the Aurora channel (aka Firefox 29).

 

* Significant development will continue over the next 6 weeks, as we burn down current Australis bugs as well as new issues found by the Aurora audience. These fixes will land on both Nightly and Aurora.

 

* Upon the following uplift (March 17th), we'll again make an evaluation on uplifting Australis to Beta or holding it back on Aurora for the Firefox 30 train. There is significant risk to backing out a large project from Beta, so the intent will be to ride a Beta to Release.

 

* We will, per previous plans, cease maintaining the backout-branch for Nightly ("Holly"), and will instead be maintaining a backout-branch for Aurora. We may (pending further discussion) drop this branch as well if/when it becomes obvious that we will be uplifting to Beta.

Edit:

 

This means that Aurora users should see the Australis interface coming their way after 29 hits Aurora. Next version shift is on 2014-02-04, Nightly and Aurora builds sometimes take a few days off around then, but you'll probably have it by the end of the week if they do indeed uplift.

Aurora DOES have Australis cooked in now, so there's that.

Directory Tiles will instead suggest pre-packaged content for first-time users.   Some of these tile placements will be from the Mozilla ecosystem, some will be popular websites in a given geographic location, and some will be sponsored content from hand-picked partners to help support Mozilla’s pursuit of our mission.  The sponsored tiles will be clearly labeled as such, while still leading to content we think users will enjoy.

 

Only affects first-time users (or i guess users with blank histories, maybe)

Any article that contains the word "sustainable" will be vomited out of my immediate memory and long lost.

"We are excited about Directory Tiles because it has inherent value to our users ....."

 

 

Just imagine how excited your users are at the prospect of getting this extra value for free!

will fight vehemently to get rid of.

 

 

If all you have to do to remove them is visit half a dozen different websites, I hardly see this as a big deal.

yeah, it's been backed out of the beta channel. I haven't played with it too much
