Some Reasons to Try Out a Nightly Build

Sunday February 13th, 2000

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.


#26 Are we talking about the same browser?

On my computer, it takes at least five minutes to change the mail settings. Every time something new shows on the screen, Mozilla slows to a crawl. This happens when there is a new browser window, a new mail message, when I edit the preferences, or even when a window pops up to tell me a server cannot be found.

I have been able to check for new mail, but not able to send mail. I used the same settings I use with Netscape 4.7.

Is it possible to check the Netscape Webmail using the Mozilla Mail and News? If so, what is necessary to do this?

I have found that the browser works much better if absolutely no other programs are running, I do not use the mail, I do not edit the bookmarks or preferences, and I only view simple Webpages.
