Firefox 4 Beta 12 Released, Probably the Last One Before RC

Firefox 4 Beta 12 has been released with new features, bug fixes and stability improvements. This release seems to be last beta followed by a release candidate.

I am still saying probably because of delays in release of Firefox 4 so far but as per the following comment from Mozilla release team and updated release schedule, beta 12 is the final planned beta for Firefox 4.

New Features in Firefox 4 beta 12
  • Increased performance while viewing Flash content
  • Hovering over links now displays the URL at the bottom of the window rather than in the location bar
  • Appearance improvement for Linux
  • General stability, performance, and compatibility improvements
  • Read more about release notes from here
To add the PPA (daily build) and download latest beta, run following commands in terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firefox-4.0
