Mozilla Firebird 0.6.1 Released

Monday July 28th, 2003

mozilla.org has just released a minor upgrade to their Mozilla Firebird 0.6 milestone, to fix a few key issues regarding security and stability, including the autocomplete crash. Builds are now available, and the 0.6.1 Release Notes and other documentation are being pushed to the site currently.

We expect a 0.7 release to happen later in the Summer, and hope for a 1.0 prior to the end of the year. More information is available about the release plan in the Roadmap doc.

Update: After a short delay, the Mac OS X release of Firebird 0.6.1 is now available from ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firebird/releases/0.6.1.

Folders are NOT more intuitive than anything else. And yes, I used IE for years. I much prefer Mozilla's use of a single bookmark file to the million+1 folders/files of IE. Easy of export is the key reason that NS/Moz ruled in that dept.

And I miss the tab opening/closing options. I use TBE, but they don't allow you to re-order them to the Moz order. Data loss is one of those things that should be more on the user than the developer (in the 'Close All Other Tabs' sense) - I think the warning is now sufficient, and could be modified to warn when closing 'All Other Tabs'.
