    I’m using the Mac build, and if it is official, so why is it renamed to DeerPark? Shouldn’t it be Firefox and have the official icon?

  2. Jeff Walden Says:

    As a release, it’ll get much greater exposure than a nightly build. Hence, you’ll get end users who’ll download it. If it’s branded regularly, they might think it’s safe and good to use when it’s really not – it’s a testbed for developer use. Unbranding it makes the chances of mistaking it for something that’s actually stable smaller.

  3. Smokey Ardisson Says:

    Which is probably a good idea, since subjectively recent nightlies seem to be more unstable than older ones. Of course, maybe I’ve just chosen bad nights ;) (I download Fx nightlies about twice a month to have a relatively recent trunk build to check against when doing bug triage for Camino).

  4. Boris Says:

    I dnon’t know if its a reported bug:
    On one tab I had an image opend after that I opend some webpages (in other tabs) while loading this webpages I refreshed the image (.png image on my own computer) after that the icons of the webpages that were opend we the same as the image I had on the first tab.

    It only happens when I reload the image while loading the webpages (and not always).

    PS its under Linux (Gecko/20050527 Firefox/1.0+)
