Mozilla 1.2.1 Coming Soon

"Also, the 1.2 release tag was not complete so builds created from that tag may have additional problems. If you're building Mozilla you can pull the tip of the branch or wait for the 1.2.1 tag to get the correct files.

"Sorry for the inconvenience."

Thanks a lot for your answer. It really gave me a lot of insight. You might even consider including that somewhere on bugzilla's homepage or faq or even better: whenever you vote. That might save a lot of people from overestimating the voting feature. I agree with most of your points. Mozilla has certainly proven to be a stable and secure browser. Germany's #1 computer magazine has even titled "security hazard IE" and a comprehensive introduction how to install and configure Mozilla, in its latest edition. Sometimes I'm afraid though that M$-IE could steal the show again with features more visible to the end-user. But the right mix between "end-user-features" and crash-bug-fixing is certainly difficult. Well, after your post, at least I look a lot more optimistic into the future as my trust in Mozilla's "open source democracy" is restored.
