Mozilla 1.0 RC3 Released

Thursday May 23rd, 2002 today released what they hope to be the final release candidate prior to shipping 1.0. The majority of the changes between RC2 and RC3 are crash fixes in all areas of the client. We presume that if crash data over the weekend is positive, could release Mozilla 1.0 as early as next week. Keep watching MozillaZine for news on 1.0 over the weekend, and for its release.

You download RC3 from's releases page or from the FTP site, or check out the release notes.

#61 "mozilla" command now creates new instance?

When mozilla is already running,

$ mozilla <URL>

no longer opens a new window at URL, but pops a profile choosing dialog forcing you to create a new profile, otherwise the window won't open. That makes URL handling (e.g.) in "Evolution" quite unusable.

It appears as if the mozilla command is now creating a new instance of mozilla, not only creating a new window.

PS: Evolution runs "galeon" by default, but this is a link to mozilla in my case. URL handling was working up to RC2.
