2004-02-08 Branch builds

  • Fixed on trunk and branch: 233391 - apply charset name canonicalization (bug 224748) to toolkit
  • Fixed on branch: 233149 - download manage window blinks non-stop if new download is added while not in focus. (Fixed by disabling the blinking completely for now.)
  • Continued regression: 233287 - Software License Agreement appears without line breaks
  • Continued regression: 206029 - Installing Flash screws stuff up (forum thread).
  • Continued regression: 229600 - Installing 2 extensions without restarting re-launches extension-installer for previous installed extensions.

Ben Goodger plans to fix the license bug at the last minute, at the same time he changes the version number to 0.8 on the branch. Hopefully his fix will also fix the Flash installation bug (both problems involve line breaks).

Windows builds: Official Windows installer

Linux builds: Official Linux, Official Linux+xft+gtk2

    Yuck, I tried todays build, and while everything is great. Extension support took a leap downwards.

    Installation causes crashes (like many have reported) and maytimes when installing an extension, it pop-ups multiples install screens, causing me to install an extension multiple times.

    While this doesn’t affect anything, it’s a pain, and can cause fault installs (if you accidently install to profile then hit cancel in next window, intalls to global). While this does vary upon the extensions, it’s a nasty bug.

    I should have mentioned, this could very well be a problem with the new download window, and not so much extension installation.

    Jed, the devs decided to ship Firefox with the multiple extension installer bug. =(

    Question: Is there any way to just turn off the Download Manager so we don’t have the extension install problem? I much prefer the Download Statusbar extension to the very annoying Download Manager.

    Just a thought.
