Full Article Attached Mozilla 1.0 Released!

Tuesday June 4th, 2002

Mozilla 1.0 is here! The final 1.0 builds, representing four years of development work by the open source community, are now available for download. The release of Mozilla 1.0 makes an important statement: now believes that the goals specified when the project began (and since enshrined in the Mozilla 1.0 Manifesto) have been met.

Mozilla 1.0 also represents maturity and dependability. Many of the Mozilla APIs, such as XUL, have now been frozen, providing guaranteed compatibility for developers building on the Mozilla toolkit. In addition, will continue to maintain the 1.0 branch as a stable and long-lived baseline on which vendors and other distributors may work. Further additive changes (mainly critical fixes) will be released from the 1.0 branch as 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 etc.

Mozilla 1.0 is available for download from's web site and FTP server. The Mozilla 1.0 Release Notes have also been updated.

MozillaZine would like to thank all the developers, testers, bug reporters, documentation writers, vendors and community members who have helped to make Mozilla such a success. We are proud of our years of service to the Mozilla community and intend to continue providing our growing audience with the latest in Mozilla news and advocacy for years to come.

#189 I think you're doing it all wrong, try this

You are replying to this message

come on... in NO WAY do you need to be a "programmer" to achieve this. you sound as though you're making the mistake of opening the JAR file straight into WordPad


can't you see that all you get is a load of garbage? yes, but you didn't figure that you'd taken the wrong path, so you assumed it was someone else's fault

the JAR file is a compressed file format, like a ZIP file

here's what you should do:

- using a compression utility (i.e. PowerArchiver, but presumably the inferior WinZip does the same) open the mozilla\chrome\en-US.jar file so that you can see what files it contains;

- find the NAVIGATOR.DTD file in the list (not NAVIGATOR-TITLE.DTD as the previous poster instructed);

- double click on it or do whatever is required with your operating system to open it into a plain text editor (i.e. NotePad, you're better off not using WordPad as its more than just a plain text editor, and you're better usi8ng a fully fledged plain text editor such as NoteTab Light or something)

- find the line with the {&buildId.label;} text (Edit -> Find);

- change that {&buildId.label;} to whatever text, if any, that you want to appear in your title

- save the file

- close the plain text editor

- the compression utility should recognise the file within the JAR package has changed and prompt you asking if you want it to re-compile the package

- run Mozilla. if you did anything wrong it will tell you where the mistake is
