Mozilla 0.9.6 Released

Tuesday November 20th, 2001 today made available for download binaries of the Mozilla 0.9.6 Milestone. The builds are available on the releases page, or you can get them directly from the ftp site.

New to this milestone are fixes for about 1,600 bugs including support for site icons in both the url bar and tabs (expect IE's favicons to show up in 0.9.7), displaying both Windows Bitmap (.bmp) and Windows Icon (.ico) files inline on all platforms, a new print preview implementation, Page Setup improvements on the Macintosh, Mail message 'labels' (Correction: This feature is not fully complete, only parts of the backed have landed.), and a new select and search context menu item, among others. If you are interested in more information on any of these new features, be sure to check out the release notes.

Also, last week released the source code on which Netscape 6.2 was based.

#213 Bug? Form 'Shivers' in 0.9.6

I was having the same problem as Saidiadude on the Mozillazine site.

When I reach the end of the "Response" field, the text blinks or 'shivers' when I try to continue typing. Here is a workaround I have found: Press the enter key several times (to create blank lines) when you reach the end of the form field in your Hotmail message. Repeat this process again when you reach the end of the text field. I do not know if this is an established bug or not.

This bug seems to occur after a certain number of lines in a form field. If anyone else has information on this bug, that would be greatly appreciated. (It is somewhat hard to reproduce - for example when I was typing this reply, it twitched for some time, but then stopped. Weird - I have not figured this out.)
