Permanent link to the most recent beta
Once restarted, a dedicated whatsnew_beta page should be displayed.
You get to try out early versions of skipscreen before the general
release -- but in return, we ask you to poke at it, to push it, to run
it through its paces.
Please, try to 'break' SkipScreen. Download everything you can find
at this page - download simultaneously; look at the menus, change the options -- can you
actually disable things? Can you re-enable them? Be Creative! more
than 400,000 people use SkipScreen everyday -- and you few are trying
to replicate their weird habits!
And please -- give us your feedback. Did the extension auto-update?
Did it fail? Either way -- we'd love to find out. We've been getting
hardly any feedback on the latest beta releases. Are we not asking you
enough questions? Asking too many questions? Not giving you the right
resources? We understand that you're doing us a favor -- and we
appreciate it -- but without feedback, we don't know if anything at
all is working....
Since the production-version of SkipScreen only checks the
production-version for updates, and this beta-version only checks for
updates of the beta version (and contains in-process code, as well as
potential new bugs), I recommend using distinct profiles for your
'normal' and 'beta-test' browsing.
You should be able to start the profile manager via 'firefox.exe -p -no-remote'
if that doesn't work, see mozilla.com:Managing profiles and let us know
how we can improve these notes.
Also some testing resources listed at the left, like
— a FireFox screenshot extension. If you see anything weird and can't save
the page, take a screenshot! or do both.
If you get an unhandled page, or anything else that's strange, please
make a copy of the page via File >> Save As >> Web Page, complete, zip
it and mail it to email@example.com! And/or get a
screenshot of the error.
A big thanks toall of you for checking these versions out, and letting
us know how things are going. Couldn't do it without you.
