    "Not Found
    The requested URL /firefox-3.7a1pre.en-US.win32.d2d.zip was not found on this server.
    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

    Its because the build has been updated on the original page thus what Bit is still linking to is the old build, it seems he updates the builds with improvments and fixes and then just replaces the download link in the original blog post

    http://www.bassified.nl/firefox-3.7a1pre.en-US.win32.d2d.2009.11.29.zip

    So it may do well for people to keep checking the original blog for new builds every now and then ;)

    his also released a new blog about testing it etc http://www.basschouten.com/blog1.php/2009/11/25/firefox-and-direct2d-performance-analysi

    Has anyone found that after installing Minefield, their Mozilla browser (specifically the download box) hangs like a mutha?

    Or is it just me?

    this fixes the slow rendering of pages with fixed backgrounds and semi-transparent block level items (DIVs usually).

    but yeah this is still alpha grade.
