Some Reasons to Try Out a Nightly Build

If you haven't tried a nightly build in the past few days, we might have some reasons for you to do so.

Borofkin writes, "The latest nightly build has persistant proxy authentication, making it usable for those of us whose only Internet access is via an authenticating proxy server." I know a lot of people have been asking for this to be implemented.

Second, if you have shied away from using Mozilla's Mail/News because of the slow performance of the thread pane, you should really give it a try now. The threadpane now scrolls smoothly. There are still a few bugs, but the improvement is very noticable.

#2 these nightlies are great

However mozilla is crashing when I try to download something. Hopefully that will be fixed by M14. Also I'm hoping that they will fix the bug with <> Forgot the bug number but its been bothering me for quite a while.
