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.

#45 New set of icons for files associated with Mozilla

To make filetype icons before I had to go through the registry every time I installed a new version of Mozilla and find Mozilla's filetype entries and delete the DefaultIcon keys so Windows would make its own filetype icons out of a blank page icon with the 16x16 Mozilla icon in the middle.

So I don't want to sound ungrateful, but the new filetype icons look somehow 'wrong' compared to the other Windows 2000 icons and the bolder blue/orange square Mozilla application icons.

They're in bin\chrome\icons\default.
