Mozilla release mockups for upcoming Firefox Linux releases

The folks at Mozilla have released the first mockup showing what Firefox 4.0 may look like on Linux... and it looks an awful lot like the Windows version. Firefox 4.0 isn't due out for another year or so, but the developers have already stated a few goals for the project. One idea is to move the browser tabs above the location bar. Another is to consolidate the menus into a few tabs that will...

Firefox 3.7 adds per-tab taskbar thumbnails (like IE8) on Windows 7

Those of you running Windows 7 and prepared to tiptoe through the Minefield, Firefox 3.7's most recently nightly build has added another taskbar integration feature. Now the latest trunk build includes support for per-tab thumbnail previews just like Internet Explorer 8. And just like IE8, the magic works across multiple instances. If you have two Minefield windows open at the same time, you'll...

Firefox 3.7, now with Windows 7 jumplist support

Now that Windows 7 is just weeks away from hitting retail shelves, more and more applications are beginning to take advantage of the new shell integration features. A while back, Google added jumplist support to Google Chrome. Just days ago, a build offering the same functionality finally appeared on Mozilla's Tryserver. Yes, Firefox fans, you now have the opportunity to test jumplist support in...

Firefox 3.7 to replace menu bar with Chrome-like page, tools menus

A few months ago the folks at Mozilla released a mockup showing some proposed design changes for Firefox 3.7. Foremost among them was a redesigned navigation area that replaced the traditional menu bar (file, edit, view and so on) with two drop-down menus, one for Page and another for Tools. You know, kind of like Google Chrome has. Now the Firefox team has released an updated series of mockups...

The folks at PortableAppz have put together a portable package. What that means is you can run Firefox 3.7a1pre as an executable file without installing it first. Instead of an installer, what you get when you download the portable version...

First Firefox 3.7 pre-alpha appears in nightly builds

With the first Firefox 3.6 alpha in the bag, what's the next logical step for Mozilla to take? Why, to roll out the first pre-alpha of version 3.7, of course. Sure, the 3.6 alpha 2 is still labeled Minefield, but why not go for maximum danger factor with your bleeding-edge install? The 3.7 interface hasn't yet started to look like the mockups we saw a little while ago. Glass support isn't...

Make Firefox 3 or 3.5 look like the Firefox 3.7 new theme mockup

Well, that sure didn't take long. Just days ago Mozilla posted a few conceptual images displaying a new default theme for Firefox 3.7. Thanks to DeviantArt user Boneyard Brew and his friends, you can now tweak your existing Firefox 3 install (provided you're not running 3.6) look pretty dang close to the mockups. You'll need to grab a couple things to pull off the transformation: Personal...
