M10 Out! You Thought They Skipped It?

Friday October 8th, 1999

Well, the plan was that they were going to skip an M10 build and go straight to M11. However, they decided that to reach beta they needed a bit more time (which is why beta is now scheduled for around 12/15/99), so they're spinning an M10 build to help with regression checking.

Be sure to check out the first Milestone appearance of the DOM Viewer (Debug>DOM Viewer) which allows you to see the DOM tree for a page. Also, if you haven't checked out Mozilla since M9, go back through our archives and you'll find news on new functionality that you can try for yourself.

So, go get M10 for Win32, Mac, or Linux from the Mozilla FTP site. If you mirror it, let us know so we can post your mirror here. In the meantime, you can read the M10 release notes.

BTW, proxies do work. Check out the comments at the bottom of this bug page to see how...

Also, we'd love to see some reader assessments of M10. Submit them in our Reader Reviews and we'll post them. Your review can be as long or short as you desire, but if it's around 500 words, you're 1/5th of the way towards a stuffed Mozilla. You don't have to use the entire 500 words on just M10 - you can give us your feelings about how far Mozilla has come, what you hope to see at beta, at release, etc. The Reviews section is for you all to have a place for your opinions, whenever you feel the urge to say something. It'll always be there if you feel the need to rant or rave...

UPDATE: If you are having trouble getting M10 to start in Windows, try deleting the mozregistry.dat file in your C:\windows directory.

We have two reviews of M10 for you to check out. Click the links in the box at the top of the page, or get to them visiting the Reader Reviews area (there's a link in the navbar at left).

As much as people (reporters) like to complain about delays/setbacks, I'm happy to see the Mozilla team taking the time to get it right. I hate nothing more than when I'm using IE and it brings down the task bar. Unfortunatly, the quality of the product doesn't ensure public acceptance. :-(

I know the BeOS build was brought to M8, but I haven't seen any builds after that. Why aren't they doing nightly builds on Be, and why isn't there an M10 release for BeOS?

BeOS is not a "primary platform" for mozilla.org at this time. The M8 builds were released by the BeZilla team, which includes a person from Be Inc. You'll have to contact them.

Try asking on the moz.beos newsgroup.

This stupid Mozilla team is really made from a bunch of lazy people. I have never seem so many "Nothing much in this week's report" in a weekly summary in any other project. Hey, they are full time programmers and they also have 'nothing to show you for this week' kind of weekly achivement.

Mozilla will fail not because it is open sourced but because they hired a bunch of lazy coders.

I'd rather wait for Opera and paid for a browser but again, opera missed their deadline too at the mean time.

They may be lazy in your opinion, but at least they have some pride in releasing something that is stable and as bug free as possible, unlike IE.

If you can't wait for Mozilla, then stop complaining and go off and use your Opera.

I'd rather have something that doesn't crash and take down the OS, and something that is free on top of that, and wait just a few more weeks.

Downloaded it quickly (ADSL: nice!) and ran it on my Linux laptop.

It's zippier than what I remember, but it really needed the ~/.mozilla directory to be nuked -- wouldn't start otherwise. And yes, my XML/CSS pages still render; great!

What's annoying, I see lots of display turds. They overwrite the "file" menu with button images, leave part of the horiz scrollbar for those leftmost panes when I hide them.

When I viewed <http://www.ora.com> I got LOTS of horizontal lines drawn across the screen.

In summary -- the "Debug" and "QA" menus are clearly there for a good reason! But progress is visible.

M10 is running great. Loads pages way faster than Netscape, and looks nice witht eh slick blue interface. But 2 bugs are, well, bugging me. The first one is, if you click on the Mozilla or Open Windows button on the bottom taskbar, Mozilla crashes. The other one is, Mozilla isn't saving the browser window size when Mozilla closes. But besides these 2, it's running fine. :)

Linux users; dont forget to remove the mozilla directory in your home directory if you have a previous mozilla install. I could not get M10 to run until i removed the mozilla directory in my /usr/local and removed the mozilla directory in my home directory, and installed M10 fresh. Windows; I had no previous install, but there is a similar something you must remove. The browser works decently well, much better than past milestones. It is useable. Be aware to focus your problems, fustrations, and bug-reporting to bugzilla.

Writing in the M10 Mac build. This is by far the best build to date and it looks like things are improving quickly. Rendering is wonderful and fast. Startup seems great, 5s on my G3-350, compared to 3s with 4.7; I'm sure it will be faster than Nav by release time. Interface 'feels' more responsive. Contextual Menus are really nice to see. No crashes!. Feeling more and more like a daily browser and we're not even close to beta. Now if only the majority of the preferences and shortcuts would work. Also, JS seems slow (like IE). Keep up the great work! I'll have to try a M10 on N/T to see how far things have *really* progressed. Yo!

The DOM Viewer is awesome, even if I can't figure out how to shut it down again without closing the browser.

On my Win95 box, M10 DID remember to open fullsize upon shutdown/reboot. The save password thingy crashed it, tho. But it's fast and context menus are coming along VERY nicely.

Another tip of the hat to all the coders!

by Anon

Monday October 11th, 1999 3:15 AM

IE5's view is structural just like M10's. It displays things in a tree-format just like the DOM Viewer.

The difference? It displays each tree row in a nice syntax-colored mode with attributes displayed, and frankly,looks far better and more useful than M10's.

Also, IE5 has a context-sensitive "web helper" that allows an identifcal to M10 DOM Viewer too.

I don't see why I have to invent a better one to simple observe that IE5 has both Mozilla's DOM style available, and a far superior combined syntax-colored-source-view +structural view.

Looks like they didn't make their Javascript compatible across browsers. The problem is this: No browser out there correctly supports the DOM -- Document Object Model -- yet (Mozilla is mighty close, though), and IE and Communicator both had their own proprietary object model. It would be very easy for the site's webmaster to write some Javascript code that would be cross-browser compatible, but he has decided against that.

Eventually, when all browsers move to using DOM the way the W3C recommends, he'll only have to write code to that recommendation, and it will work on browsers that support it.

The M10 <A HREF=<http://www.mozilla.org/pr…ey/release-notes/m10.html>> release notes</A> state that "If the fonts are too small in your environment, it may be possible to alleviate this by setting a preference in Mozilla. Add a line like the following to the preferences file (~/.mozilla/prefs.js): user_pref("browser.screen_resolution", 120);

This sets the dpi to 120. If you set the pref to zero (0), Mozilla will use the X server's dpi value. If the pref is not set, it uses the default value of 96.

There is some info about setting the X server's DPI value at <A HREF=<http://www.mozilla.org/unix/dpi.html>><http://www.mozilla.org/unix/dpi.html></a>.

If your fonts are still too small (or too large) after setting the DPI correctly, you can adjust the font size as follows:

setenv GECKO_FONT_SIZE_FACTOR 1.5

Note that the latter only affects fonts. The screen_resolution preference affects anything that specifies absolute size (e.g. CSS "pt" points).

The presentation of images have been improved. Now Mozilla renders images without spaces betwen them, and two of my sites now are rendered properly and fastly.

But <http://www.eurielec.etsit.upm.es/> renders awfully. Somebody knows if its a problem of the HTML code of this page, or I have to commit a bug report??? You see the same problems on other platforms??? [ I'm on Win32 :( ]

The problem is that Mozilla breaks between images which are in table cells.

It's reported in bug #4427

#57 "Shatter" Page

Geez, this is like kindergarten-level JavaScript -- and it's been done wrong. The author of this page used an IE-specific shortcut in his scripting. If he'd just done it correctly (by prefixing the calls to the image object properties with "document." like you're supposed to), there'd be no problem in *any* JS-compliant browser, including IE and Opera as well as Netscape or Mozilla.

Moral: Don't place your sole trust in the documentation at MSDN. And take an extra 30 seconds to *test* your pages in multiple browsers before posting them.

I've been following the releases of all the Milestones and most of time I download the nightly builds. Thanks to the person that recommended deleteing the mozregistry.dat thing in the windows directory. I was wondering why the darn thing kept crashing. Can't believe it this release even loads my website. WOoohooo!! Can't remember my password this post so I am anonymous

Where exactly is this DOM viewer in IE5? Or is it that thing you get when you load an XML file

Hi,

Just tried the M10 build & I've gotta say I like it a lot ! The search feature looks really promising... I wonder when Mozilla will get an installation routine (i.e. be installed like a regular app) Does anyone know ?

Thanks, Rick

I don't think they'll add an installer until it hits beta since there's no real need for it right now since not everything is suppose to be consumer friendly while it's still in development. I mean if it were to be completely consumer friendly right now the DOS window would not show when you run Mozilla since that will confuse a lot of people.

But if I remember correctly they is work being done in an installer app.

#68 Hrm, buggy as all hell? :)

The Win version is far buggier than M9 - the new controls like this edit box don't work (try entering more than two lines and it fails to wrap; try backspacing and watch graphics; etc.) - and it renders mozillaZine wrong (first paragraph in the topic description at top of this page is in correct font, remaining paras are in Times.)

That said, right-click menus now work, which is a "hallelujah" occasion as far as I'm concerned :)

(One step forward, two steps back? :)

#69 Some of those are fixed in current build

Just to note that I tried the current nightly build and the edit box works a lot better (it still wordwraps incorrectly but only slightly, I reported that as a bug [I'm somewhat hesitant about reporting bugs since the query system is so incomprehensible, but i don't tHINK it was there already]).

Form elements are really badly screwed in M10/Win in general though; trying to use it for bugzilla was a joke. :) In nightly build they are at least usable.

I'm glad there are several months until a beta is supposed to be done because they're going to need every minute of it :)

Remember, in general 'tis better to report the bug and have it be a duplicate than to not report it. Sometimes, the duplicates are hard to find using search terms (for instance, when I reported an incorrect rendering of the Box Acid test, there was a dup of it in terms that I would have never thought to search for), but it's still better to report a non-obvious dup than to not report. :)

At the top of this page it says that the beta release will be 12/15/99, but at mozilla.org, seamonkey milestone page, it says that m13 will wind down to a beta release on 2/15/00. Which is it?

The latest build has a pretty spiffy "New Profile" dialog...I hope it's a prediction of things to come. I'm still waiting for preferences to save before I can really use Mozilla for anything other than testing.

Looking better than ever - but despite hand editing the prefs.js file according to the bugzilla link (and triple checking it!), http proxies still don't work for me. All I see is the rotating barber pole graphic, a context-proxy-menu message, and that's all.

I see that many people here have problems with installing M10... If I were you, I would read Release Notes (you can find them atleast from <http://www.mozilla.org/pr…ey/release-notes/m10.html>). It has got instructions how to install M10, and how to remove previous builds. It will save much time...
