Firefox for Maemo RC3 Available Now

Today, Mozilla released the third Firefox for Maemo Release Candidate.

Since RC2, Mozilla said that it had fixed several usability bugs that were found, as well as addressed a number of performance issues.

"To improve page load times and responsiveness, we tuned a number of preferences and improved several algorithms. We?ve sped up zooming and made our panning even better," Mozilla said.

If you?ve already got RC2 installed on your N900 or N810, you will be receiving a software update shortly. Otherwise, you can install it from here.

Mozilla decided to disable plugin (not to be confused with add-ons, which are supported) support for this release. The Adobe Flash plugin used on many sites degraded the performance of the browser to the point where it didn?t meet Mozilla's standards. If you wish to enable our experimental plugin support, you will be able to manually via about: config, but do so at your own risk. Mozilla said that they were working on an add-on that would allow the user to have control of which sites to enable plugins for, as some sites, like YouTube, do work quite well.
