Experimental Mozilla Firebird Builds Available

Saturday August 2nd, 2003

Two experimental builds of Mozilla Firebird have been made available to help test some new enhancements. The first build, available for Windows and Linux, introduces some improvements to the Password Manager backend, such as always encrypting saved passwords. Backing up your existing passwords file is strongly recommended before trying this build. See Brian Ryner's post to the Firebird Builds forum for more details about the Password Manager build.

The second experimental build, available for Windows only, features enhancements to the download handling and helper application functionality, with changes to make it easier to specify how different file types are handled. Ben Goodger's post has more information about this build and its download improvements.

Both builds can be downloaded from ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firebird/nightly/experimental. Do not report bugs in these builds to Bugzilla; instead add a message to the relevant topic in the Firebird Builds forum.


#8 Extentions in Installation

Why can't they add a feature in the installation process that allows users to connect to the internet, check what extentions are available and install which ones they want while they install the browser. Shouldn't be too hard I have seen it done before and would be a great feature for Mozilla Firebird. It will also keep the installation file size down because the actual extentions will be kept online.

A whole lot simpler IMO and I think it will attract more users.
