It looks like Mozilla won’t be able to deliver on its promise to release Firefox 3.6 by the end of the year after all. According to an update on the organization’s Wiki, users of the beloved open-source browser can now expect to see version 3.6 released sometime in the first quarter of 2010, while Firefox 4.0, originally slated to ship late next year, could arrive as a beta in the summer of 2010 and in final form “in late 2010 or early 2011.”

Code-named Namaroka, Firefox 3.6 is expected to deliver significant performance improvements, updates to the Awesome Bar, and integration with the Mozilla Labs Personas project to customize the browser’s appearance. There’s also a Firefox 3.7 in the mix, which will improve Windows start-up time and include the Jetpack system for easier to write, install, and upgrade plug-ins.
