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: mozilla.org now believes that the goals specified when the project began (and since enshrined in the Mozilla 1.0 Manifesto) have been met.

"I don't know why the profile's stored under a seemingly randomly named folder (eg. 26q7kkdf.slt on Win98)"
It's a security precaution. A lot of exploits in the past have allowed the reading or modifying of files by an attacker if s/he knows their location. The 'salted' directory name (randomly generated based on the date and time that the profile was created) helps to prevent this.
