Has mozilla development work slowed? There has been little new here at mozillazine for a while.

Mozilla Foundation is not affiliated to Mozillazine.

The reason behind lack of frequent news updates at Mozillazine is that we're busy with work/life/etc.

HEY!

i just realized that the Mozillazine articles always seem a little, ummm, "anonymous"... If Mozillazine articles are written by a number of different people, why don't you guys put a little name on the bottom, saying who wrote it? (is that what journalists call a "byline"?)

The articles are almost always good ones, so nothing to be ashamed about...

How about adding a few other people to the admin roster who aren't so pressed for time?

It's not just that the Fx 2.0.0.1 release post was 5 days late that bothers me. It would also be nice to see some posts on other stuff. Surely there is more going on in the Mozilla world than just the latest security/bugfix updates? For the last couple of months I've just been ignoring the Mozillazine home page and heading straight to the FeedHouse.

I submit stories now and then and you guys have only posted one. What's keeping you guys so busy that you can't post the articles that go to your submit news queue?

Firefox typically uses 40-80 MB of RAM, but periodically reaches 120 MB. Any more than this and you may have configuration or software problems.

Not everytime when firefox used many memories. on my test, only some special address which used too many memories such as <http://www.sina.com.cn> etc. even if I open only one tab, it eat more than 50% of 768MB memories. in other case, below 10% of momories was used even when I opened a dozen tabs.

I visited the web site listed (in addition to other ones - this wasn't straight after opening the browser) and memory usage is listed as about 81MB, with VM size 72MB, in Windows Task Manager. So it doesn't look like this problem is repeatable that easily.

Seamonkey 1.1 just started locking up my system (have to use Firefox to post this).

Up thru Seamoneky 1.0.7 i have had no installation problems, and the Bookmark managing in Seamonkey 9the old Mozilla Suite) is so much better than the &*&@^#$#% bookmark mismanagement in Firefox that i use Seamonkey as my default browser.

They changed something that not only makes the theme look a bit funky, but TOTALLY LOCKS UP (including locking up windows itself) when i even so much as HOVER OVER the bookmark menu item, before even clicking on bookmarks.

*grumble*

i may have to switch back to 1.0.7 until they can fix this :(

#17 update: ARRRRRRGHHHHHHHHHHHHH

OK, it seems to be a conflict between the bookmark managing and the theme; a different theme allows bookmark management to work ok.

more investigating needed here....

#20 problem with Firefox2/google home page

Since I downloaded latest Firefox, my much-customized Google homepage won't load at all, or loads VERY slowly (half an hour). Didn't do that with previous version. Am now using SeaMonkey as my browser? Is it me? Or is there a problem.... thanks
