Mozilla 1.6 Alpha Released

Friday October 31st, 2003

The Mozilla Foundation has just released Mozilla 1.6 Alpha, the first milestone of the 1.6 development cycle. Amongst its other enhancements, 1.6a features many Mail & Newsgroups improvements, including vCard support, an option to remove mail from a POP server after x days and a preference for placing the user's signature above quoted text when composing an email or newsgroup posting. For more information, see the Mozilla 1.6 Alpha Release Notes. This latest release can be downloaded from the Releases page or directly from the mozilla1.6a directory on

Update: The original Windows builds did not contain the Personal Security Manager, which enables encryption for services such as HTTPS and secure IMAP. This error has now been corrected and new builds are available. Windows users who have had problems accessing secure Web pages or using other secure Internet protocols should re-download.

The Win32 build is missing PSM (Personal Security Manager) due to a configure error. You can't access any HTTPS/SSL sites with it..

I hope we get a new build in the next days.

Additional Note : The Suite is better if you use both, Browser and Mail (TB+FB are using more memory together as the Suite)
