Mozilla Firebird 0.6 Released

Friday May 16th, 2003

At last, Mozilla Firebird 0.6 has been released! A lot of changes have been made since the last version of the browser — then known as Phoenix — came out in December. The most noticeable of these is a new default theme, based on Qute by Arvid Axelsson. The Preferences dialogue has been replaced with a redesigned Options dialogue and you can now clear your history, cookies, cache etc. with a single click. Many improvements have been made to the bookmarks system, including an IE-style context menu for items in the Bookmarks menu. In addition, this release includes Quality Feedback Agent (Talkback), allowing crash data to be sent directly back to the developers. Mozilla Firebird 0.6 also features many of the enhancements that have been made to the Mozilla Application Suite, including automatic resizing of large images to fit in the browser window and smooth scrolling.

Read the Mozilla Firebird 0.6 Release Notes for more information and grab a download from Builds are available for Windows, Linux and now Mac OS X. As explained in the new Mozilla Development Roadmap, Firebird and its mail/news client sister Mozilla Thunderbird will become the focus of future development after Mozilla 1.4 is released.

You are replying to this message

"How can we notice whether or not you're right when you haven't effectively argued a single point..."

You would have to understand English reasonably well to understand the points.

"have a strange penchant for glaringly obvious factual errors (such as this bit about Microsoft integrating IE with Windows to avoid an antirtust suit)"

There was no factual error. <http://www.mozillazine.or…=3180&message=140#140> You tend to misrepresent me, and your misrepresentations of me contain factual errors.

"your profile lists you as what, a 30-something woman?"

No. You are misrepresenting me again.

"your writing ability appears to be on the level of a 14-year-old boy"

When I was a fourteen-year-old girl, I had more aptitude than you appear to have now.

"I somehow doubt that profile is anything close to the truth."

I have not viewed my MozillaZine profile in years. I do not believe you know what the truth is because you obviously are unable to accurately read what I type. Show me this profile that says I am "thirty-something."
