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.


#27 New tabbed-browsing prefs

This new milestone has settings for Navigtor-->Tabbed Browsing, which is very helpful. Unfortunately, the bottom three settings do not work for me:

Open tabs for Windows opened by the webpage - checked it off, clicked on a link with target=xxx and it opens in a new window instead of a new tab.

Open tabs for middle-click or control-click of bookmarks and personal toolbar items - doesn't work when checked. Middle-click one of my bookmarks and nothing happens. Control-click on a bookmark and it loads as any other bookmark would.

Open tabs for Control+Enter in the URL bar - this feature does work when checked, but it also opens new tabs for a single <enter> in the URL bar.

Tried this on two linux machines and yield the same results. Are their manual prefs.js settings for these features I can try? They all would be very nice to have...
