mozilla.org releases Mozilla Milestone 0.9.4

Friday September 14th, 2001

mozilla.org today released Mozilla Milestone 0.9.4. New to this release is the ability to disable the JavaScript window.open() method during page load and unload events. You can find more information on what's new at the release notes.

Builds are available on mozilla.org's download page(or go right to the FTP directory).

A recent post to the Mozilla builds newsgroup explains that Netscape will continue to check into the 0.9.4 branch. Work continues on the trunk toward Mozilla 0.9.5.

I decided to give the latest milestone a try to see where Netscape is headed. I sure hope this isn't it.

Delays in loading pages are so long that I thought my computer had crashed! Pages with complex backgrounds (including those on tables) redraw these backgrounds pixel by pixel when a new URL is loaded. I thought the problem was that I had installed Mozilla without the Mail / News and Chatzilla components, so I tried a new install with everything. Same problem.

I was using a fresh profile with the latest version of the classic Mac OS, 9.2.1, and I even created a second test profile to see if the first one was just corrupt. Nope -- apparently there's something wrong here.

Netscape 6.1 is a fine product. Except for the occasional site that can't seem to decide whether I have Flash installed or not (I always do), it's a pleasure to use. I hope that future versions will not destroy that pleasure.

FYI, these are the URLs I tried: <http://www.cbs.com/primetime/bigbrother2/> <http://www.macsurfer.com/> <http://news.cnet.com/>
