This thought occurred to me last night - when a major
security issue is found in the stable release of
Firefox, the Mozilla devs are normally quite good at
getting a point release out within a few days. If a
major security issue was found in 3.0b5, would they
release a fix for it as soon as possible, or would
they just wait until the next scheduled release
(which, in this case, would be RC1)?
