Firefox 31.8.0 ESR Beta 5 for OS/2 released

The waiting is over: Firefox 31.8.0 ESR Beta 5 for OS/2 was just released yesterday. The delay was caused by latest fixes for the open file dialog. The other changes that took place you can read in the post about the 31 ESR build.
Compared to the alpha build this release needs the libkai 1.1.4 runtime to get this build starting.

Changes in this release:

  • Update Firefox to version 31.8.0 ESR.
  • Put back all OS/2 code that was removed by the Mozilla team between
    versions 24 and 31 to bring Firefox back to life.
  • Review JavsScript support to fix infamous crashes under heavy JS usage and
    greatly improve overall JS performance on OS/2.
  • Enable audio in HTML5 content and in JS using libkai.
  • Temporarily disable out-of-process mode for all plugins to fix 100% CPU load.
  • Make File->Quit shortcut (Ctrl+Q) work again.
