Mozilla 1.4 Release Candidate 3 Coming Early Next Week

Friday June 20th, 2003

In a weblog posting, Asa Dotzler has confirmed that there will be a third release candidate of Mozilla 1.4. RC3, which is likely to ship on Monday, will contain fixes for several bugs, including a major memory leak that mainly affects Windows 95/98/ME users. There will also be several Mac OS X improvements. New 1.4 branch builds — which will very likely become the final RC3 binaries — are now available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

#18 Mailnews plain text compose still broken

I was hoping this would be fixed soon... it was a problem in 1.0 and it has only gotten worse, not better. Every email I send (using the plaintext editor) that has a line ending with a period (in the rightmost column) still indents the next line twice when it wraps (bug 91608). And recently, Mozilla has started adding a CR/LF after cited text. And sometimes while deleting selected text with the delete key, the cursor fails to move upward as the text below does. The last two happen with the HTML editor as well as the plaintext. The result is that a high percentage of mail sent with Mozilla looks like hamburger when it gets to where it is going. This is a high-visibility bug... not a crasher, but it really makes Mozilla look crappy.
