Mozilla Firebird 0.6.1 Released

Monday July 28th, 2003 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

#8 Still waiting until MFB has more useful features

Firebird has made it undesirable for me to switch from Mozilla because there must be some overlap time during which I need to use the same bookmarks file (use mozilla BM file in MFB). However, for some reason i disagree with, MFB changes all BM Groups to a subdirectory. I prefer reall BM Groups and now my mozilla Groups are ruined by MFB. :-(

I also have little interest in installing a bazillion (maybe slightly less) "extensionss" just to get needed functionality (e.g., "Close all tabs").

Put back the needed features and unbreak the Bookmark Groups and I will be glad to switch to Mozilla Firebird. ;)
