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.

The same thing happens under Linux, so it's definitely something in Mozilla. Looking at the DNS requests, it seems that Mozilla is trying to open "find", and it pretty much seems to walk through your resolver's search list looking for "find", and failing that, it defaults to looking for www.<whatever>.com, just like Mozilla will do if you just typed in 'find' in the URL-field.

Now, why it tries to load "find" when you open the history tab in the sidebar is another question. It could be an honest mistake, or something more sinister.
