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.


#56 Proxies are working

I have a proxy server on my home set-up and one of my machines which I have mozilla on connects through this proxy server. I set up the proxies through the prefs GUI and they didn't work so I closed mozilla and re-launched it and then mozilla was able to connect through my proxy server (http at least). Also if your build is kind old I remember a time a few weeks back when the proxy settings were getting written to the prefs.js slightly incorrect. If you open your prefs.js (located in the Users50\yourprofilename directory) and look at the proxy setting and you compare that to the settings in the prefs.js file for Netscape Navigator, they should look the same. For a while I remember that the proxy pref when added from the prefs dialog was including some extraneous character that once deleted fixed the proxy connection problem. If this isn't working for you after you've checked these possible solutions come visit #mozillazine any weekday evening (USA time) and I'll be glad to try to help.
