CWmike writes “Mozilla has shipped a release candidate build of Firefox 3.6 that, barring problems, will become the final, finished version of the upgrade. Firefox 3.6 RC1, which followed a run of betas that started in early November, features nearly 100 bug fixes from the fifth beta that Mozilla issued Dec. 17. The fixes resolved numerous crash bugs, including one that brought down the browser when it was steered to Yahoo’s front page. Another fix removed a small amount of code owned by Microsoft from Firefox. The code was pointed out by a Mozilla contributor, and after digging, another developer found the original Microsoft license agreement. ‘Amusingly enough, it’s actually really permissive. Really the only part that’s problematic is the agreement to “include the copyright notice … on your product label and as a part of the sign-on message for your software product,”‘ wrote Kyle Huey on Mozilla’s Bugzilla. Even so, others working on the bug said the code needed to be replaced with Mozilla’s own.”
