Mozilla 1.7 Release Candidate 2 Available

Monday May 17th, 2004

The Mozilla Foundation has made Mozilla 1.7 Release Candidate 2 available for download. Like the first release candidate, which came out last month, this build is designed to ensure that there are no major bugs remaining before the final release of Mozilla 1.7. The Mac OS X version of RC 2 now includes the Quality Feedback Agent (Talkback) crash reporting tool, bringing it in to line with Windows and Linux and making it much easier for developers to pinpoint the causes of crashes.

1.7 RC 2 will probably be followed by a further release candidate before the final launch of Mozilla 1.7. After the milestone ships, the 1.7 branch will replace the 1.4 branch as the stable development baseline, with Mozilla Firefox 1.0 and the next major version of Netscape expected to be built from it. More information about this latest release candidate can be found in the Mozilla 1.7 RC 2 Release Notes and builds are available from the Releases page or the mozilla1.7rc2 directory on

My understanding is that Mozilla does consider it to be a problem, and so the message wouldn't be a bug. mvl is just saying that the fact that it is broken probably won't affect normal usage.

If you want a user-support type answer, then it's probably something like "your system doesn't meet the minimum requirements for Mozilla - we can't help with that, you need to fix your system". But saying that is probably less helpful than advising that the message can be safely ignored in 99.99% of cases.

In my limited experience, it's not all that unusual for programs on Linux to spit out messages which can be ignored.
