Mozilla 1.7 Alpha Released

Monday February 23rd, 2004

The Mozilla Foundation has just unveiled Mozilla 1.7 Alpha. This release features improved popup blocking, with a better method for detecting and stopping popups and the ability to open blocked popups. Mail & Newsgroups now supports multiple mail identities per mail account (though there is no user interface for this yet) and also sports several usability enhancements. In addition, this version of Mozilla adds support for the onBeforeUnload event and includes a newer and enhanced version of ChatZilla, which now understands the /ignore command. Mozilla 1.7 Alpha is also smaller than 1.6 and page load times have improved since the last release.

Get a build from the Mozilla Releases page or direct from the mozilla1.7a directory on More information can be found in the Mozilla 1.7 Alpha Release Notes.

In every single release I hope and hope for a little change to the way forwarding of mails work.

It would be so much easier if attached emails would get the extension ".eml". As it is right now I need to save the email to desktop and attach it like a normal file, if I want to be sure that the receiver knows how to open it.

Ex. outlook will just say its unsave to open it, making it greyed out, or something, with the default settings.

I have found a single "bug" report on it once, but it doesn't seems there is anybody working on it. So my question is, why is I the only one, and my colleague who always complaince about all the extra work he has to do to open the emails I forward to him.

I'm not really into the bug-system and such, and maybe this is a feature request and not a bug?
