  • Relief via Firefox

    Mozilla Firefox is now available.  The update is a security and stability release and this explains why Firefox users might have been seeing more crashes than usual. Fixes for security problems in the JavaScript engine described in MFSA 2008-15 (CVE-2008-1237) introduced a stability problem, where some users experienced crashes during JavaScript garbage collection. This is being fixed primarily to address stability concerns.I knew something wasn't right with my favorite Web browser. …

  • Goodbye Thunderbird?

    I am saddened by continued reports that support for Mozilla's email client, Thunderbird, continues to diminish. From DesktopLinux: The Mozilla Foundation's press release focused on the Firefox 2.12 security fixes. The Foundation also reported, though, in its MFSA (Mozilla Foundation Security Advisory), that these same bugs had been fixed in the fictitious Thunderbird 2.12... ...Still, it is upsetting that Mozilla reports that these problems have been fixed in a version of…

  • Firefox 3 Visual Refresh

    Alex Faaborg has some mock-up images on his blog of what Firefox 3 will look like on both Microsoft's Windows Vista and Apple's Mac OS X.  I have yet to see any images for what Firefox 3 may look on a Linux box and many of those commenting are also not happy Linux was left out of the picture. You can see the mock-ups yourself by clicking here. The visual for Firefox 3 on Vista looks very nice but I'm not so sure about the the visual for the Mac.  The Mozilla bloggers are giving a lot of reasons…

  • Thunderbird 2.0

    Mozilla's flagship e-mail client, Thunderbird, is now available under version 2.0. I've been running the Thunderbird 2.0 nightly development versions for almost six months without any problems. I expect Thunderbird users will have little problem with upgrading from version 1.5 to version 2.0. Straight from the release notes I've listed at the bottom of this post are the new features users will find in Thunderbird 2. None of the new features are earth shattering for e-mail clients but I do…
