Mozilla Firebird 0.7 Released

Wednesday October 15th, 2003

The latest milestone of the Mozilla Foundation's standalone browser was released today. Based on Mozilla 1.5, Mozilla Firebird 0.7 features several enhancements, including support for webpage content in the sidebar, a stylesheet selector and a better Options dialogue. Some of these new features were examined in MozillaZine's August article on Firebird. Version 0.7 also contains numerous other changes.

Download a build today from the new download page or the Firebird 0.7 directory on ftp.mozilla.org. Also, don't forget to check out the new Mozilla Firebird product page, which has lots of information for end users.

Extensions are weird critters. Some are installed into the "application" directory (where the EXE is) and some into the profile. But if they let you set any options, all your choices are in the profile.

So, if you have any extensions in the app dir, you'll have to reinstall those after installing the new FB. But you'll probably find that your custom settings have been retained.
