Another day and another problem fixing. This time, there were disk drives missing in the Windows 7 Disk Defragmenter Schedule menu. Drives were listed in main Disk Defragmenter window but not in the schedule option.

I was trying to solve this, Googling around and couldn't find the solution. Then i was testing something else and they magically appeared. And the only thing i was doing last was running Windows Experience Index utility (the one that benchmarks various system components and gives you performance index). That is the solution for this bizarre problem. How on Earth would anyone find out you have to run WEI to list the drives!?SOLUTION (for Windows 7, similar for Vista):
- open Control Panel
- select System and Security category
- under System category click "Check the Windows Experience Index"
- click "Re-run the assessment" (bottom right corner)
Wait a minute or two for tests to complete and check the Disk Defragmenter Schedule menu again. The drives should be listed again.

Well, not officially yet on a official web page, but you can download it on their FTP. It's located in the releases folder which means it's the exactly same version that everyone will get later when it's officially released. It's a Mozilla practice where they don't release it until all the test channels are moved forward.EN-US version:EN-US DownloadAll languages:Multi-language DownloadWhat's new?
Mostly under the hood changes for WebGL and new features for HTML5 and search capability for Twitter.
There is also a very small change in the interface where additional buttons like Sync, Downloads, Bookmarks and so on aren't bulged out all the time when using small icons. They are flat now, unless you hover mouse over them. Then they get the 3D shape. There are also small changes in the add-ons management to improve control over add-ons.
