Firefox, Thunderbird Minor Upgrades Released

Tuesday June 29th, 2004

mozilla.org today released upgrades to both Firefox 0.9 (0.9.1) and Thunderbird 0.7 (0.7.1) to fix some minor bugs present in both releases. Both releases correct some flaws in the extension system that some users may have been experiencing, as well as a new icon set for the navigation toolbar on Windows and Linux in Firefox 0.9.1. All users of both products should get this upgrade. Builds are available for Firefox 0.9.1 and Thunderbird 0.7.1, as well as updated release notes (Fx, Tb) for both.

The download page for firefox still suggests the windows download for people using Win95 even though firefox 0.9.x doesn't work with Win95. I know the release notes say Win98 min, but might be good if the autodetect looked at windows version and suggested that firefox will no longer work with win95 rather than suggesting downloading the current windows version. It's just the sort of people who will download it and have it crash (as it does on 95) that will not look at the release notes but still complain that it doesn't work. It could instead point them to 0.8, as that did work with 95, but I guess as that has bugs and incomplete features and such, it's not a great way to go either - or better to the Moz suite as it still lists 95 in the 1.7 release.

Just some thoughts from someone stuck on Win95 at the moment!
