    [SOLVED] wait - do I have firefox 3 or not?

    I've installed updates and it looks like I have firefox 3 - but it is a release candidate right? This can't be the finished product as it isn't released yet.

    I only ask because the "about firefox" option under help shows no indication.

    Yes, you have the Release candidate version, I'm not sure why but the firefox team did not mention in the about firefox window. The actual release is on 17th June.

    Release candidates are just that... release candidates. If nothing is wrong with them then they are made the release. This is why there is no text telling you it is a release candidate in the actual program, because it would need to be removed for a real candidate for release.

    You can still see the version with
    apt-cache policy firefox
