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.


#24 Why is the stand-alone web browser this big?

I use the FireBird on my Mac and the Mozilla on my Windows XP machine.

I noticed very interesting fact with the FireBird. Why is it that big? 33MB when installed. Windows version is smaller than Mac version, but there are more problems. For example, the menubar icon customization panel is not sized well, etc. So, someday the size of the Windows version can be as big as that for the Mac version.

I think stand-alone version should be small. However the Firebird is not. ( What is the size of the Mozilla? I don't remember it exactly, but the Firebird is too big when the Mozilla is considered. )
