Mozilla 1.7 RC 1 Released

Wednesday April 21st, 2004

Asa wrote in to let us know that the first release candidate of Mozilla 1.7 has been released. Mozilla 1.7 reintroduces the Talkback crash reporting system, better GTK2 support, new popup blocking features, and a slew of other new features. A more complete list of changes in all components is available in the Mozilla 1.7 RC 1 Release Notes. Builds can be grabbed from the Releases page, or right from the FTP server.

Mozilla 1.7 is the next stable product branch for Mozilla clients, and it's expected that Firefox 1.0 and a new Thunderbird version will be released off it later this year. Along with that, MozillaZine also expects a summer release of a rebranded Mozilla 1.7 as a Netscape 7.2.

Update: Myk Melez wrote in to tell us that Mozilla 1.7 RC 1 can also be downloaded from the mozilla1.7rc1 directory on, the European Mozilla FTP server.

#32 Some images are missing

Well, I noticed that some images are missing in this homepage (it's a big shop in Spain) <> it worked propperly in Mozilla <=1.7a (not in Mozilla 1.7b) and it works ok in Firefox 0.8.

I also wanted to notice you that when you click in one product (the image or the link), you go to the product's detail homepage. And there you have a link to make the image bigger (in spanish "ampliar imagen"), and there is a "bug" that makes the window of a fixed size (it's resized according to the size of the image). I revised the script and it should work ok (well it uses the layers feature of Netscape 4), but it doesn't work on Mozilla (well in older versions it allowed you to resize the pop-up window... but I think it was 0.XX version, I mean that it shouldn't allow you to resize it). I wrote a message to the webmaster when they made a redesign of the site (there was a contest asking users about the redesign), but I had no reply. I really would like this feature to work on Mozilla, because I use this page very often, and what I do it's to copy the address of the image, open a new tab and paste the address of the image... well, it works, but it's not what a common user wants.
