Mozilla 1.6 Released

Friday January 16th, 2004

The Mozilla Foundation released Mozilla 1.6 yesterday, the first new milestone of the year. This latest version features several Mail & Newsgroups improvements, including vCard support, a preference to remove mail from a POP server after x days, a setting that places the user's signature above the quoted text when replying to a message and optional separate Recipient and Sender columns in the thread pane. In addition, NTLM authentication is now supported on all platforms, the automatic page translation function has been restored and several stability and security bugs have been fixed. The Gecko rendering engine has received a lot of attention in this release cycle, leading to improvements in standards compliance and faster page load times than ever before.

Mozilla 1.6 builds are available for a variety of platforms from the Releases page and the mozilla1.6 directory on More information is available in the Mozilla 1.6 Release Notes.

Not sure what the issue is, but obviously it's not happening consistently. The poll works fine for me with 1.6. Maybe it's a cookie issue of some kind? Unless someone can work out what causes it to stop working in a particular profile, the chances of it getting fixed permanently (if it is indeed broken) are pretty much zero.
