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.

ouch! ok, it looks for me as if it had actually saved a valid image before giving the "error" message (UNLIKE the right-click-save-as-bug #238943 in the mail/news reader part of the suite). but this is still scary - some of us save images constantly from the right-click-save-image in the browser... anyone know if this (NEW) bug with 1.7rc1 is in bugzilla yet? this is different than #238943, that was mail/news, this is broswer, also this one did NOT appear in 1.7beta (whereas the #238943 seemed to start with 1.7b)
