    Bug 236977 is dead (and will be dead in my today’s nightly).

    Stay tuned ;o)

    Welcome back Jesse, you were missed.

    Bug 171605 has been fixed, but to delete an entry SHIFT + DEL is being used instead of just DEL. Interesting conversation in this bug about it.

    The About dialog now says “Some trademark rights used under license from The Charlton Company.” What trademarks exactly? The CVS Blame doesn’t show any extra info: http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsblame.cgi?file=mozilla/browser/base/locale/aboutDialog.dtd&rev=1.6

    The company’s homepage isn’t particularly helpful, either:

    “You have connected with The Charlton Company.

    Our web site is not available to the general public. If you have any questions, please email the address below.”

  4. Bill Mason Says:

    I’m not in the know by any means, but I would guess it has something to do with the problems they had securing the Firefox trademark in Europe. See http://www.bengoodger.com/weblog/archives/cat_mozblog.shtml

  5. Jef Pober Says:

    Isn’t that the company that provides TalkBack? When forming the Mozilla Foundation there were some problems because that technology was licenced by Netscape from another company…
