Is M12 Alpha?
Thursday December 2nd, 1999
That's what the mozilla developers would like to know. If you're a member of mozillaZine, you can participate in a survey to help gauge our readers' feelings regarding the current pre-M12 builds. If you're not a member, it's easy to become one (and free, too). Just visit our members page and follow the instructions.
Then, visit the survey page, and answer all the questions. You will need to be a member to see the survey results, and you cannot see the results until after you have voted.
If you don't have a current pre-M12 build, you can grab the latest nightly build from our builds page.
If you have tried the builds, but haven't tried things like mail or news, please vote 10 for those questions pertaining to email or newsgroup usage.
The main thing I'd want to see changed before *any* kind of semi-public release (I know alpha is not beta, but still) is to get rid of that damn ugly menu-bar at the top, or fix it to fit in with the skin... I think the skin itself looks nice (spinner excepted) and is perfectly "conservative".
Also, Mozilla doesn't work with the forum at <http://www.animeondvd.com/> - you can read messages, but try to log in to the forum, it doesn't accept a password - but I don't know enough to file an even halfway intelligent bug report about this, or what to search on to see if it's known...
Apart from that, not being able to drag a link into another window to load it is stopping me using Mozilla, I need that feature the whole time. ("Open in a new window" is ok but you end up w/ too many windows...)
