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.

The BlackDiamond project is number 7 on the Mozdev Least Active List and includes the Firebird .5 release. That's not the best place to send people who want included extensions unless they also want bugs.

The best answer is that people should quit their whining and just get the extensions themselves.

It's not that hard to go to: <http://extensionroom.mozdev.org/> or <http://texturizer.net/firebird/extensions.html> and install the ones you want.
