CNET: Firefox for Intel Macs planned for March

From their leadin:

“We are targeting the official release of Firefox for Intel Mac OS X in late March with the Firefox 1.5.0.2 update,” said Mozilla software engineer Josh Aas told.

According to the reporting, there are only two real areas where adjustments are needed. This is good news, and means that, as expected, we won’t be seeing any rendering engine changes:

“The first issue is some compatibility issues between the (Macromedia) Flash plugin shipped with Mac OS X 10.4.4 and Firefox. We have been working closely with Macromedia to resolve the issues.”

The other issue relates to the need to update to an Intel version of the ‘Java Embedding Plugin’ (JEP), which handles all Java applets in Mozilla’s Mac OS X products.
