The much-anticipated Firefox 2 will release at 6 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on Oct. 24.
Mozilla also confirmed that "Firefox 2 is scheduled to release Tuesday afternoon PST."
The data concurs with Mozilla's revised Firefox 2 schedule for August.
On Monday, people began pointing to various FTP sites where users could get an early download of Firefox 2. Mozilla, however, said that it "does not guarantee that any set of files currently found within its Web site, or elsewhere will be the final release."
It is possible that people are finding the Firefox 2 RC3 download, the third release candidate of Firefox 2 that was already available.
Mozilla recommends that users retrieve the official Firefox 2 release Tuesday from the main getfirefox.com or Mozilla.com channels and not a direct file link.
Firefox is a direct competitor of Microsoft's Internet Explorer, as well as Opera. Microsoft only recently released the final version of IE 7, an update to Internet Explorer, after offering the same features on the browser for almost five years.
