Firefox 3 beta and Commonspot
A new version of Firefox is now available in a beta release.  We've noticed a few issues in our initial tests using this Web browser and Commonspot.  The most noticeable impact on ease-of-use is that new browser windows are often not resized and positioned in standard forms.  For example, opening an editing window for a text block won't position the new window above the main view. The default settings for handling window opening and resizing can be modified through the Tools > Options > Content > Enable Javascript (advanced) options. Read More »
