Firefox 3.1 beta 3 developers prepare for freeze

Mike Beltzner, the director of Firefox, sent out the call Tuesday afternoon on It's time to lock the trees and land the bugs on beta 3 of the 3.1 version of the browser.

As of 3pm PST, just nine bug landings stood between the dev team and handoff of mozilla-1.9.1 to the Release Engineering crew according to the thread on Google Groups. Beltzner noted in his Twitter stream that he "is hoping we get done with beta 3 code for Firefox tonight" after a day so busy he was wondering if he needed to block off time for bathroom breaks; the staff of Betanews wishes him all the best with, well, all of the above.
