  1. Per Ångström Says:

    I’m having trouble with the Linux build: the browser won’t show. The last sign of life are these two lines on the console:

    *** loading the extensions datasource
    *** ExtensionManager:_updateManifests: no access privileges to application directory, skipping.

    In the 2005-03-08 build I get the same message but the browser starts fine.

  2. Spaceman-Spiff Says:

    nice new layout :)

  3. James Says:

    Per Ã…ngström: I’m not sure, but it sounds like Firefox is updating some files related to recent extension changes but Firefox can’t because it doesn’t have read/write access in either your profile directory or the application directory. Remember to back up your profile before you mess with anything.

    Is anyone on Linux seeing GNOME stock images? I’m not seeing them in any dialogs or anywhere they should be.

  4. Jason Meller Says:

    Man I love this new layout. I still wish the links were on the left though, it’s kind of throwing me off.

  5. Agagooga Says:

    The new layout’s pretty but the older was easier to read… Larger main column, among other things, so more bugs could be displayed at once.

  6. Mugros Says:

    Yeah, nice layout, but could you make it wider or let it adjust to the size of the window? It is so narrow, every bug description covers multiple lines. Much of the screen ist wasted.

  7. Scott Says:

    Yeah, same problem here. Since every bug wraps to a second line now, the one post takes up 3 and a half vertical page.

    I blame the excessive, pointless gray margins.

  8. Xaxio Says:

    I’ve look at your site, Scott. You’re not one to talk about excessive margins.

    I think the new layout is just fine, there could just be a few SMALL changes. Here’s some constructive criticism for a change:


  9. Dan Says:

    The Burning Edge is a really great resource, but I have to agree with the others that it’s extremely difficult to read in the new fixed-width layout (and with the huge header). Would it be possible to serve the old style sheet for the Burning Edge pages and just use the new layout for the rest of SquareFree? It’d make the B.E. a whole lot easier to read (and also maintain consistency with the Rumbling Edge, for what that’s worth).

    Thanks for providing this great service.

  10. Administrator Says:

    I just switched from Movable Type to WordPress. This is just the default WordPress theme; I’m not too attached to it. I plan to do something about the fixed-widthness, either by finding a new theme, or by ripping out large parts of this theme’s stylesheet and then reimplementing something similar to the old layout (which was based on Movable Type’s default).

  11. DaF Says:

    This is the wordpress default template :). It’s ok but at least streach it a bit and make the text right aligned.
    The rest can stay as is, also I was just wondering, why the change to wp?

  12. Steve Says:

    Cool layout.

  13. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    I talked about why I switched to WordPress in this post on my other blog.

  14. Tony Says:

    Glad to see this isn’t going to be permanent. The new WordPress default theme is rather bland, as many has said it’s too narrow and the header is just far too big.

  15. me love FF longtime Says:

    great new theme. please make variable width, or at least wider . Ta

  16. Ali Ebrahim Says:

    The about: bug has at long last been fixed!

  17. Jugalator Says:

    Could the new layout possibly be made to scale better horizontally to your actual screen width. Now I run in 1280×1024 and have plenty space both sized and a super word-wrapped column for the trunk builds. :-/

  18. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    I’m thinking of switching to a fluid layout with no sidebar. Mockup

    For reference, here’s the old two-column layout I used when I used Movable Type.

  19. P Says:

    Longtime visitor, first time poster :-)
    Let me tell you how valuable the Burning Edge is to me: EXTREMELY

    Now for feedback on the new one, I agree with pretty much everyone else about the narrow look… “ick”
    I love the one-column approach.
    Being able to see pretty much one per line is great.

  20. Agagooga Says:

    My bit: the sidebar is useful… One column’s one column too few.

  21. hank Says:

    Briefly going off-topic (grin)
    — I’ve seen odd font substitutions with OSX nightly lately and looking at forums I see various people reporting text showing up wrong, not being able to fix the problem. I haven’t found this explained anywhere nor a bug report, and am not sure if it’s all the same problem.

  22. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    Two layout mockups: One-column, Two-column. The two-column layout has a sidebar. The one-column layout has no sidebar, and instead has navigation links at the top: FAQ, Release changelogs, Links, Archive, RSS, Search. Both layouts are fluid rather than fixed-width.

    Which layout do you prefer?

  23. Grey Hodge Says:

    Two column, personally.

  24. Adrian Jackson Says:

    Two-column would get my vote also, though I’m probably biased by the fact that I’m browsing at a fairly high resolution. I guess the narrower your browser window gets, the more appealing one column becomes…

  25. P Says:

    Either one works for me. though I have never used the sidebar. But my resolution is high enough that it’s not in the way, either.
    It’s true that a single column does look a little too much like a vast expanse of mush, while two gives a little more structure.
    I think as long as it’s fluid and doesn’t have hugs margins, you won’t get many complaints about either of those.

  26. dzd Says:

    Why not provide a theme switcher? I’m fairly sure there are WordPress plugins that allow just that.

  27. Tony Says:

    Two column please, though there could be a /little/ bit more space between the columns. Just a bit more ‘whitespace’ inside the green / red lists so the text isn’t right up against the edges.

  28. Tony Says:

    On second thought… two columns looks great as is.

  29. Grador Says:

    Probably very stupid question, but what is difference between green part and red part of bug fixes ?

  30. Tony Says:

    Well, the red part isn’t bug fixes, that’s the green part. The red part is known bugs / problems / regressions etc.

  31. bugs Says:

    why no burning edge update in 10 days? noticed a bug in the 3/22 build – if second level bookmark menu expands to the right, you can’t select any of the bookmarks in the second level. move the browser to the right side of the screen so the bookmark menu expands to the left and you can select the bookmarks then.

  32. Kevin Says:

    Make that 11 days :(

  33. Tony Says:

    I’d say either Jesse is busy, or there just haven’t been any major differences to warrant rushing out and getting the latest nightly. No big deal… the nightlies are still there, and so is the checkin info.

  34. Jugalator Says:

    Whenever there are delays in updates here, I simply use bonsaibugs.org, also linked to the left on his main page.

    For example, fixed Firefox bugs 2005-03-23: (green text here)

    As a bonus, you also get interesting/noteworthy fixes highlighted.

    … and known regressions: (red text here)

    And particularly bad regressions highlighted there.

    I like those more than hunting the build discussion threads on MozillaZine myself, besides it’s so much junk going on in those posts :)

  35. Jugalator Says:

    Hmm, what, my comment didn’t appear??

    Oh well, I was just posting a tip on using bonsaibugs.org if you really want to bug fixing progress and regression tracking.

    Today’s build…
    Fixes: http://bonsaibugs.org/pyblosxom.cgi/firefox/2005-03-23? (“green” here)
    Regressions: http://bonsaibugs.org/pyblosxom.cgi/firefox/regressions/regressions-2005-03-20? (“red” here)

    Noteworthy fixes/regressions are highlighted too.

    Links to the latest Fx build on that site is to the left on this site.

  36. Tony Says:

    Sometimes it takes a few seconds, sometimes your browser cache simply doesn’t pick up the change. Be sure and try a shift+refresh. Like the new(er), improved layout!

  37. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    Jugulator, your comments didn’t show up right away because they contained enough links to make me have to moderate them. When I add comments that require moderation, I see my comment in place with a message like “other readers don’t see your comment yet because it is awaiting moderation”; I don’t know why you didn’t see that message.

    Tony, I’ve switched to WordPress, so you shouldn’t need to reload to see the page.

  38. dolphinling Says:

    The new layout is wonderful. Clean, stylish, functional. Thank you. :-)

  39. brooks Says:

    Jesse – The new layout is really great. It’s nice to have some extra color with my firefox updates!

    I’m wondering if you’re taking a break from updating the Burning Edge or something like that? No pressure, just curious.

  40. David B. Haun Says:

    Links for this nightly have been taken down by Mozilla.

  41. Sean Hayward Says:

    Any time frame about when the next build will be ready?

  42. ft Says:

    Hey guys, is it normal that when I try to open an URL from mIRC it open me the page how if it is a file in my pc if it’s without the “http:” (it open me the file file://drive:/folder/www.page.com) is it a bug? I think so…

  43. darthmdh Says:

    ft, I think that’s good behaviour not a bug. If the user fails to specify the protocol in the URL it should default to a local resolution to prevent all kinds of security issues (spoofing attacks, unexpected automatic dialup to the internet, etc)

    In short, if you can’t type a URL, its not a browser bug.

  44. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    Sean, builds come out every day. I’ve just been too busy to update The Burning Edge. An update takes me about 30 minutes per day since the last update.

  45. ColdFusion650 Says:

    285709, 284664, 272556, 231361, and 176177 are all fixed.

  46. Freyr Says:

    Sean here is the link to the latest trunk version of firefox.
    Also to any linux users that use the truck try out my script here.Makes it easy to install trunk(And the latest offical release too :).

  47. Avi Says:

    Laziness is a virtue… :P
