Same version I’ve been running for quite some time now. 2005-07-20 5:44 pm Only available in English. *sigh* How long will it take this time for other languages to be available? I don’t understand why a point release with no changes to the UI cannot be available in the languages that the previous point release was available in. Or has something the user interacts with been changed between 1.0.4 and 1.0.6? 2005-07-20 6:52 pm Ronald Vos Good question. You’d think there’d be some standardisation regarding localisation. 2005-07-20 10:08 pm d a v i d > How long will it take this time for other languages to be available? Not long it seems – Japanese is now available with what looks to be the vast majority of other languages as well http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/all 2005-07-20 6:10 pm deathshadow They fixed the damned memory leak… Hmm, wonder if they got the timer straightened out too, or if it’s settimer still works in anywhere from 600ths to 800ths of a second instead of thousanths… 2005-07-20 9:45 pm Have proof? 2005-07-21 12:54 am joelito_pr Do you have the source code? If you have the source code. Did you found the leak? If you found the leak. Did you either reported it or wrote a fix? 2005-07-20 6:13 pm adya33 congratulations on quick release lets hope they won’t have it in near future AGAIN Or has something the user interacts with been changed between 1.0.4 and 1.0.6? 1.0.4 to 1.0.5 security update 1.0.5 to 1.0.6 http://tinyurl.com/bwo7z 2005-07-20 6:51 pm ikaro year 2005, click on an url in thunderbird and guess what … nothing happens. great. 2005-07-20 7:16 pm year 2005, click on an url in thunderbird and guess what … nothing happens. erm… it works here. 2005-07-20 9:03 pm Mozilla Firefox 1.0.6 is available in non-English languages. Almost all versions are updated now. http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/all.html Thunderbird however is a different story. You have a point there. 2005-07-20 9:06 pm … ever work..? 2005-07-20 9:24 pm drsmoothy … ever work..? The auto-update in Firefox does work, but they normally release it after a few days. In addition, the updater currently downloads and installs a full version of Firefox. Firfox 1.1 will include delta patching, and will be able to send small patches containing the differences only. 2005-07-21 2:35 pm well since 1.03 my update hasn’t picked up *any* of the updates… I got tired of waiting so I manually loaded 1.05 the other day (obviously more that a few days!) on both home and work PC’s… now I’ll do 1.06. 2005-07-21 2:33 am Why are they so worried about having FF and TB at the same minor-minor release version number? They skipped at least three 1.0.Xs in TB to play catch-up with FF. I thought the whole idea behind separating them into “small”, individual programs was so that they would BE small, individual programs. 2005-07-21 3:50 am orion I wish they’d start doing the zipped releases again, at least for those of us who “prefer” “installing” their browser that way. That’s what I always liked the most about Mozilla, Firefox, Thunderbird, etc.. I try to avoid the installers as much as possible.. Oh well, I suppose it doesn’t matter. I’m using nightlies anyways. lol 2005-07-21 4:03 am Adam Scheinberg I think the demand for zipped files is pretty low. But it’s really nice for transport. Try using the Moox build if you want a zipped copy, it’s a self-extracting 7-zip. 2005-07-21 7:23 am Not only that, but the zipped option is the only one for those that must work on a restricted corporate environment. I missed the zipped file one of these days because of this…. 🙁 2005-07-21 9:00 am Lettherebemorelight If you really missed it that much, you would have found a way around that little problem. 2005-07-21 5:06 am adya33 http://news.com.com/Firefox+add-on+Greasemonkey+slips+up/2100-1002_… 2005-07-21 5:44 am Phishfry I am still peeved about the whole “Mozilla foundation kills off flagship product thing”. Something about the word foundation just seems too business-like to me. I think Mozilla is the best browser. On windows, I do not enjoy downloading the whole “kitchen sink” for the “browser only” option, but at 12 Megs it is well worth it. In the old days, I could download the XPI’s of wanted components and I liked that. Mozilla still has the “mosaic feel” that is a standard.. I feel it is much easier for “Joe six-pack” if the open source community could keep their highly competing browser named the same name for an extended period. Mozilla was far from done and Firefox ain’t no Mozilla… I know Seamonkey/Mozilla can still live on, but only if they change the Mozilla name because the foundation don’t want people to think its an official foundation release…Whatever. Those Twinkie eating fat-asses sitting at their desks need more to do in my opinion. Long live the real Mozilla. Boo foundations, your killing Mozilla (Your namesake in case you forgot)!!!! 2005-07-21 5:46 am Some time ago, I posted a comment to OSNews about this new software program I had just ‘discovered’ and had not seen any reviews about it on the many blogs and news sites I haunt; that software program was ‘Nvu’. I had offered to do a short review for fellow readers. Eugenia Loli-Queru replied to me in a negative tone saying that this site is about operating systems NOT general applications. Ok, so when did Firefox and Thunderbird become operating systems. Don’t get me wrong, I like the current mix of articles; I just think that the current editorial staff needs be a little more consistent and prehaps show some of the editorial control shown to me. Case in point is yet another “Linux is/is not ready for the desktop” article on todays posts.

Regards, Peter You must be new here… 🙂 Even if the website is somewhat an Operating System website, their “About Us”-esque page say that they´ll cover anything that might be of interest to their visitors, but that definition could change a little bit depending mostly on Eugenia´s mood back in her day. 2005-07-22 1:36 pm hehe that must be peter from the linspire forums what was it pvdl-of-au or something like that? frontpage for linux…. uh NO i dont think so… i will pass thank you! 2005-07-21 6:45 am I installed Firefox on MS Win2K3 Server and none of the back buttons worked – o well – sucks for my cleint – i’ll stick with safari on the powerbook thank you very much 2005-07-21 4:35 pm .Joe Camino 0.9.2 now blocks web adverts; even the adverts on OSNews are blocked! 2005-07-22 8:03 am Am I the only knucklehead that didn’t know there was a 1.05?
