Mozilla Firefox 0.9 Released

Monday June 14th, 2004

The Mozilla Foundation today released Mozilla Firefox 0.9, and now begins its final push towards a 1.0 release of Firefox. New features in this release include a new default theme, a new browser migration tool, reworked theme and extension managers, a much smaller download size, a new help system, and many small bug fixes and speed tweaks. More on what's new can be found in the Burning Edge's Bigger Picture or in the Mozilla Foundation's press release about Firefox 0.9.

Along with the new Theme and Extension managers, is a preview of the new update.mozilla.org website, which will be the new home for themes and extensions for all the Mozilla products, as well as possible updates to the products themselves. The site is expected to be completed sometime in the next week.

Firefox 0.9 marks the completion of major feature work in Firefox for 1.0, with only incremental improvements remaining for the drive towards beta sometime next month. More information about future releases is available on the Firefox Roadmap.

Builds are currently available from the Firefox releases page, along with the current set of Release Notes, or directly from the 0.9 directory on ftp.mozilla.org. (All builds are currently being pushed to FTP, some FTP servers may be behind, please be patient!)

I have this too, all the time now since going to .9, going back to .8 did not solve the problem, and for a while I thought it was with my wireless, which I went to a day or two before the update. But it is the same on wired, I can usually connect after clicking many times. Driving me batty. Major bug here, it is showing up all over in forums, if you do a search on the error message. I am clueless. I use a wireless router around the house, and suspect this has something to do with the problem, FF reading it as something it is not. But could it be a confusion between FF and the firewall (Zonealarm)?
