2004-10-26 Branch late builds

  • Fixed: 265532 - Missing Plugin placeholders missing from various pages.
  • Fixed: 265790 - Security: "Force links ... to open in a new tab" can let a tab close the whole browser window.
  • Fixed: Change internal version number to 0.11 so update system will be able to tell RC1 users to upgrade to 1.0 when 1.0 comes out.
  • Fixed: Change UA version number to 1.0RC1.
  • Since Oct 26 late: 266221 - Profile migration is broken.
  • Since Oct 26: 263844 - Window.close() not working on new windows opened into tabs.

These builds are almost release candidates, but they need a fix for bug 266221 first.

    Looks like a 27th release date then??

    ‘Help -> About Mozilla Firefox’ says ‘0.11 RC1’.

    I have the impression that the developers are more and more tempted to fix some bugs with band-aids in order to meet *their* deadline, rather than correctly fixing them. I fear that they are setting some time bombs for Firefox 2.0 .

  4. Jugalator Says:

    I have seen nothing to indicate this.

    Are you referring to anything in particular, or just a gut feeling?

    As for the help screen, that only means they checked in the change to the version number, not that it officially is that version.

    i always thought that each major upgrade such as version 2 and above would be cut from trunk. i.e. the branch build that leads into 1.0 now would only be used for the development of 1.x builds.

    I bet 263844 is a result of that security tab spoof checkin.

    OSX build for 10/27 doesn’t unpack for me (I’ve downloaded five times since about 3:30 am Pacific time — no, I’m not a FF addict, I’m a Saturn addict). One other person has reported the same problem in official forums. Anyone get it working?

  8. Hank Roberts Says:

    10/27 OSX build isn’t recognized by Stuffit Expander, nor by
    gunzip: /Users/hank/Desktop/firefox-1.0.en-US.mac.dmg.gz: not in gzip format

    i think this build has a prob with printing pdf file. (adobe acrobat 6 pro + win XP)

  10. Josť Jeria Says:

    bacho83: Had the same problem the other day, couldnt print.

  11. Jason Meller Says:

    The problems with printing a pdf files has been around for a while, at least for me (since at least PR was released). The printer tray icon will appear but nothing will actually print.

    Using the same document in IE works.
