Mozilla 0.9.6 Released
Tuesday November 20th, 2001
mozilla.org 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, mozilla.org last week released the source code on which Netscape 6.2 was based.

The tag you need is

<link rel="icon" href="myicon.ico">
Depending on the version of Mozilla you are running, favicon.ico from the root directory will sometimes be fetched automatically. This is controllable via a hidden pref which (I very much hope) will be defaulted to off once the feature has had sufficient testing.
Mozilla.org needs to get a clear policy on this (preferably together with the W3C) so that people know what to tell website owners.
