When I go to fillout a feedback form it tells me I'm not running Firefox Beta

Posted

When I click out the "feedback" button on the top right and select either "Firefox made me sad because..." or "Firefox made me happy because..." It takes me to a webpage that says I'm not running Firefox Beta. I'm running it in a Virtual Machine, could that be why?

I believe this is due to the original planned release date for beta 3.

Beta 3 was originally planned to be released on August 6th, but has been delayed for a few days. The feedback system appears to have been setup to stop feedback from beta 2 from 6th August when beta 3 was originally planned for release. The feedback system will work again once beta 3 is released.

I noted that you posted this from Firefox 3.6.8, I take it you also have Firefox 4.0 beta 2 installed.

Yes. My 4.0 Beta 2 is running from a Virtual Machine because honestly, I HATE the way Firefox mimics Chrome's tab setup and I didn't want to replace my 3.6.8. I tried the beta to see if it was possible to change it back. That is a major reason I use Firefox in the first place, Chrome is too minimalistic.

And thank you for the help.
