New in 1.3 Beta are improvements to the Mozilla junk-mail controls for automatic filtering of spam, an editable about:config page for tweaking just about every pref that Mozilla offers, image auto-sizing, dynamic profile switching and more. The latest release can be downloaded from the Mozilla Releases page and more on what's new can be found at the release notes. This release also marks the end of the Mac OS X CFM builds which have been replaced by the new Mach-O builds."

They are different binary types. CFM builds use the OS-9 compatible APIs in OSX and the OS-9-type binary format. They are restricted by some quirks of the OS-9 api (like 31-char filenames). They are built using codewarrior.

Mach-o buids use the Unix apis in OSX and the Mach binary format (hence the name). They are built using gcc.
