Tree Closes for Mozilla 0.9.6

Wednesday November 7th, 2001

mozilla.org today closed the tree in preparation for the branching of the 0.9.6 Milestone later this week. As usual, drivers@mozilla.org will work towards a Friday branch and a release on the following Friday. Check-ins to the tree will be moderated by the Drivers until the branch happens.

UPDATE!: mozilla.org branched for 0.9.6 on Friday, and the trunk has reopened for 0.9.7. Expect to start seeing branch builds sometime this weekend, or on monday.


#92 One more thing about password manager

On a site such as Mozillazine the password manager pops up every time a new post is read and asks for the password. This is not the best design IMHO. If the user remains at Mozillazine the password manager should only pop up once. It should automatically fill in the same values without a dialogue box continually reasking for the information again. If there is more than one password for Mozilazine the password manager pops up as each nedw post is read. The reason this happens is that each time a reply is posted the password manager thinks this is a new password beause it has a different title and store this as a new password. With multiple passwords the password manager continues to pop up as each post is read. This ia annoying. I wonder if a button could be added to the password manager such as "use only this password" and a menu item if the user wants to substitute another user name/password for the one currently selected? On some chat boards you might want several "niknames", but do not want the password manager poping up unless you want to change your nikname. If the password manager pops up after each post when reading chat boards such as "Mozillazine" this will make it harder for new users being comfortable adopting Mozilla/Netscape.
