Firefox 3.5 gets a third release candidate

Despite hoping that Firefox 3.5 would only receive one release candidate, Mozilla has now published Firefox 3.5 RC 3. Few details have been offered on what's changed.

Updated June 26 at 3:45 p.m. PDT: Mozilla stated in an e-mail today that it expects Firefox 3.5 to go public on the morning of Tuesday, June 30, almost missing its self-imposed deadline of "the end of June."

Despite hoping that Firefox 3.5 would receive only one release candidate, Mozilla has now published Firefox 3.5 RC 3 for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Details on what's changed between RC 2 and RC 3 are light, with Mozilla saying only that the changes are based on user feedback. Given the history of Firefox updates, it's likely that these were stability- and security-based improvements.
