Mozilla 1.2 - Get It While It's Hot!

Tuesday November 26th, 2002

mozilla.org has just released Mozilla 1.2. New to this version (since 1.1) are Type Ahead Find, toolbars as text/icons/both, support for GTK themes on Linux and native style for HTML form controls on Windows XP, multiple tabs as startpage, Link Prefetching, filter after the fact and filter logging in Mail, the ability to sync your addressbook to a Palm device on MS Windows, and much, much more.

Builds are now starting to show up on the ftp servers, and the release notes have been posted. Be sure to check out the updating roadmap, as noted earlier this week.


#52 v1.2 only starts as root!

Hmm... This is very strange... I just installed 1.2 and it works perfectly when I run it as root (mandrake 9.0), but when I try to start it as a normal user the startscript just finished immediately and nothing happens.

I did a clean install - wiped both the installation directory and the profile settings directory.

Does anyone have the same problem or a solution to it?

By the way... Type-ahead-find rocks!
