    @Demonlord4lf -

    Always remember that an RC is not the final one.
    It is software that is functional but not quite ready to be released into the marketplace.

    Just wanted to clarify that.

    Actually, they're pretty sure it's final, but want to be sure, so release it to beta testers one more time.

    If RC 1 doesn't quite qualify, we'll get RC 2. Generally that's a go.

    Yep. Like the release of 1809.

    Ohhhhhhh, yeahhhhhhhh, but I think Mozilla is smart enough to let the beta testers have a crack at it, rather than leave us out of the loop.

    And, I'm pretty sure Microsoft learned a valuable lesson with that one. Bet they won't do that again.

    Actually, MS should have learned its lesson with Windows 8. They "fired" all of us "in the wild" beta testers and look what a fiasco that was!
