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.

"Hello, There are 2 issues I think we should look at for 1.7final. The first is that if you do a print preview of <<>>, then you will see the "IconMozilla.jpg" image is split in two!"

This may not be an issue with the way print preview is coded. It may be a different issue. On the Mac the print driver handles the print preview and not Mozilla, and still the image "IconMozilla.jpg" is split in two. (BTW I amd using an Epson 740 printer driver.)
