This is the fourth beta release of Firefox for eCS (OS/2) version 24. It contains some UI fixes (makes the "Clear Recent
History" dialog and most recent sites thumbnails on the new tab canvas work again) and makes XUL.DLL finally loadable
into high memory. Also this release uses the new GCC runtime (version 4.9.2) which significantly reduces the size of
executables and DLLs and the memory footprint of the running application (by about 5-6 megabytes).

LAST MINUTE UPDATE
Unfortunately, the README file lacks references to a number of libraries required for manual installation. Here are the
missing links. Take the specified DLLs from the corresponding RPM archives and place them into one of the directories on
your LIBPATH (this is not needed in a RPM/YUM installation):
There was also an error in an yum command: yum install libstdc++ is wrong and needs to be replaced by:
yum install libstdc++6.
- If you find a bug (which is likely), please create an issue at the
issues page. But before you create a new issue,

- When Firefox crashes it creates a trap report that may contain useful information for the developers. These reports
are saved in .TRP files created in the directory where firefox.exe is installed. By default these reports contain only
basic information. In order to make them even more useful (and therefore make a fix for your problem much more likely)
please do the following:
- Install the latest EXCEPTQ runtime from
this one is the latest).
- Install the Firefox symbol files by downloading the .symbols.zip archive from the link below and unzipping it
to the same directory where you installed Firefox.
- Make Firefox crash again and attach the resulting .TRP file to the issue describing your problem.
