Mozilla 1.0 RC1 Released

Thursday April 18th, 2002 today released the first 1.0 Candidate, in preparation for a final 1.0 build. They'll be using RC1 to evaluate where the 1.0 branch stands as far as crash bugs, and other things that are tracking. RC1's changes since 0.9.9 include the abilty to view the source of a cgi (the most duped bug), reorganized context and main menus, LDAP over SSL, return recipts, new animated mail alerts on Windows, Download Manager, final xul syntax changes, and numerious other bug fixes.

You can download RC1 from's Releases Page or read the Release Notes. We highly encourage you to download the talkback enabled builds, so crashes can be found and logged prior to 1.0. (These pages haven't reached yet, you can grab builds from the FTP site.)

Once people start using RC1 and get a handle on how the reception of it goes, they will be deciding whether or not to release another candidate or 1.0 itself. We'll keep you updated on this process, and let you know what is decided.

Hi everyone, I got a little problem: I open the Mozilla navigator and then start the mail & news window. No problem here, but when I close the mail window and the try to open it again it does not open. Not by clicking the icon on the status bar, nor by pressing ctrl+2, nor by choosing window -> mail & newsgroups. When I close the navigator window, Mozilla-process is still active, allthough the app is not running. The Mail window can now only be opend if you kill the Mozilla task, that is still active. This reminds me on a bug in former builds when a JavaScript pop-up does not open. I am using Mozilla RC1 (2002041711) on Windows XP Pro. Anyone else got this problem? I searched bugzilla but did not find anything matching my problem. But perhaps my searching was bad.
