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

You were complaining that the line was still present in the UI of MF-0.6. Thusly, I inferred that you believed it should not be present in MF-0.6. The only logical conclusion I could see was that you believed that MF-0.6 should not be released until the line was removed (otherwise, why complain about it here? why not complain about it on Bugzilla?). And I believe that would mean that you felt this issue should block MF-0.6 from being released.

Finally, I've heard entirely too much about this meaningless line. Hence, it must be a huge problem for some people, otherwise they wouldn't talk about it so much. If it wasn't a huge problem to some people, then they would've pulled the stick out of their bum and gotten on with their lives by now.
