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.


#94 Very strange...

This is really strange... I first tried to change the permissions for some individual subdirectories to try to find the problem, but that soon got very boring. I then did an "chmod -R o+rw /usr/local/mozilla" which didn't work either. Last I tried "chmod -R o+rwx /usr/local/mozilla" and that did it. So somewhere in the mozilla directory there is some file/directory that needs the x flag set. For some reason the installer failed to set the permissions correctly... hopefully someone has filed a bug for that...

Well... at least it works now. Thanks!
