If you don't mind the regressions, I recommend upgrading to this build because of the security fixes it includes.

I also recommend that you enable error pages, now that they don't suck. To enable error pages, go to about:config and set browser.xul.error_pages.enabled to true.

    :-) All this green … it was a long time we didn’t see something like that !
    Maybe let’s wait for tomorrow’s build, given that the annoying 282872 “Download dialog OK button to click twice” is now fixed.

  2. Hussam Al-Tayeb Says:

    You posted 260951 as fixed but it is reopened.

  3. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    Thanks Hussam. I moved it back to the list of regressions.

  4. Mojo Jojo Says:

    Could you add Bug 273466 to the regression list please, it’s the only thing stopping me from using the trunk builds (I know it sounds trivial but I use that feature all the time).

    Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050220 Firefox/1.0+

    /File/New Window does not open a new window;
    equivalent splat-N gets a spinner next to the mouse pointer until the mouse pointer is moved, but no window;

    /File/New Tab does work

  6. Hank Roberts Says:

    Slightly changed in

    Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050221 Firefox/1.0+

    /File/New Window now produces the little transient spinner next to the mouse pointer;

    the equivalent Splat-N (command-N, Apple-N) key command today makes the File menu label turn blue momentarily, and initiates the little transient spinner next to the mouse pointer.

  7. Koret Says:

    Bug 177506 is miisng in your list

  8. Max Thrane Says:

    stipe’s build crashed on me anytime I tried to type any URL in the url bar and press Enter… hmm, weird…

  9. Tom Graham Says:

    Thanks, as ever, for the useful information provided here Jesse.

    Just upgraded to the 2005-02-21-07 nightly build, and I can no longer open the DownloadWith options dialog. A small window opens up instead, with the following line of text:

    “!DOCTYPE overlay SYSTEM “chrome://downloadwith/locale/downloadwith.dtd” –^”

    NOTE: The angle brackets at the beginning and after ‘.dtd’ were not included because the whole line was removed from the post otherwise.

    I installed the FF nightly over the top of FF 1.0 and the DW integration still works since when I click on a link to a file, my download manager opens up instead of the FF DM.

    Some people might say switch to the FlashGot extension, but it doesn’t support MetaProducts Download Express which I currently use.

    Any ideas on why it doesn’t show the DW Options dialog ?

    Also, whats the best way to see what bugs have been fixed in nightly builds ?

    I assume this is known and on someone’s list — still with today’s Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050222 Firefox/1.0+

    FF won’t open a new window — or any window at all, if no window is open. It’ll open a new tab, if a window’s already open.

    Javascript console shows a wall’o’pink-error-items, with this at the top:

    Error: [Exception… “Component returned failure code: 0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED) [nsIPrefBranch.getCharPref]” nsresult: “0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED)” location: “JS frame :: file:///Users/hank/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/components/nsDefaultCLH.js :: clh_handle :: line 81” data: no]
