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.


#47 Get the proxies working first

In the poll I found myself having to put a 0 in for many things because I have yet to be able to use Mozilla for regular browsing.

Why? Because the proxies are pretty well completely broken. Everything from setting the proxy preferences to the proxy actually getting used simply don't work. And as I am sitting behind a firewall, I can't use Mozilla for any serious browsing. Currently those proxy fixes are slated for M14. I wouldn't consider Mozilla alpha (read somewhat useable) until then.
