The delivery of Firefox 3.1 beta 3 has slipped a week to Feb 2.

The final beta for the .1 update was expected to ship Jan 26.

"Due to the large number of outstanding P1 blockers, we are declaring a code slip," the developers' meeting notes declared Wednesday after the weekly meeting.

The code freeze was expected on Jan 13. But Mozilla developers saw a delay coming. At last week's meeting, the crew decided that the nuber of P1 blockers was still substantial and one developer hinted that it coud be delayed by as much as three weeks.

In light of that, this week's  update -- a slip of only a week -- is optimistic.  Now, the code will freeze on January 25 and QA begins on January 27.

Guess it wa a good idea to do a beta 3 after all, huh?
