A new blocker was discovered recently what will require a respin for 
Firefox 2.0.0.2:


      Bug 370521 <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=370521>
      -- TextArea not firing onchange event (edit
      <javascript:toggleField('summary');>)

was caused by the checkin for:


      Bug 357684 <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=357684>
      -- onchange on textbox not fired when onblur changes text value
      (edit <javascript:toggleField('summary');>)


To minimize risk this late in the release cycle, we have decided to 
backout the changes from Bug 357684 and respin Firefox 2.0.0.2.  The 
latest Firefox 2.0.0.2 rc5 builds are available in 
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/2.0.0.2-candidates/rc5, 
so please help us test the latest back out and verify any other fixes 
you are interested in.

Given the work that will need to be done to build and test 2.0.0.2 rc5, 
our ship day will need to be pushed out yet again.  We were hoping to be 
done by Thur. 2/22, but are now looking at a *new target release date of 
Tuesday 2/27.

*This change will not impact 1.5.0.10, so build and QA will continue 
their work with Firefox/Thunderbird 1.5.0.10 and try to wrap that up 
soon, so we can focus on Firefox 2.0.0.2 rc5 later this week and be 
ready for release next week.*
*
I'll be posting to the newsgroups and updating the wiki page 
http://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox:1.5.0.10-2.0.0.2 with any more updates 
later this week.  So keep an eye out for any changes.

QA and build have been working overtime and it looks like we will be 
ready to ship ahead of schedule. If all goes well, we should be ready to 
sign off on Firefox 1.5.0.10 and 2.0.0.2 this evening and prepare for a 
release tomorrow.

We normally would hold off until next week, but due to the public 
exploit and this release already having slipped a few times, we are 
planning to ship Firefox 1.5.0.10 and Firefox 2.0.0.2 on Friday 2/23 ~ 
9:00am PST.

Thunderbird will be released some time next week, along with a few 
partner builds.
