  1. David B. Haun Says:

    Software update will not turn up updates using menu option. It will one update at a time using extension manager or theme manager.

  2. William Says:

    Yeah, going from a trunk build from a couple days ago to this one broke a lot, including updates. I just went back to 1.0.4 and my old profile rather than find a old nightly that works.

  3. CooLynX Says:

    Nice build. Too bad the file upload crash still exist and I even do not know under which bug it is. :(

  4. pika unforgiven Says:

    not sure why, but when attempting to check for extension updates (such as what David B. Haun said) shows updates to everything, but the text saying what is updated isnt there, and when trying to update nothing actually updates. started happening once they moved “check for updates” to the help menu instead of tools.

  5. sumguy231 Says:

    Just tried it today. One time I attempted to bookmark a page, and all the buttons in the bookmark dialog became nonfunctional and when I clicked the close button, the window dissapeared while the process continued to run. I haven’t found it listed in bugzilla, so I’ll submit it when I can find a more reliable way to duplicate it.
    Bugs aside, It’s pretty nice and the fastback feature, while buggy, is pretty snappy.

    Deer Park Alpha build trunk build 2005-06-17 fixes earlier reported bug found in 2005-06-07 build.

  7. DennisJ Says:

    Wow! I just donwloaded todays nightly and I see a quite dramatic performance improvement. Everything seems to be a *lot* more snappy and some pages that were causing a huge CPU usage spike and made Firefox freeze for 10 seconds before reacting to anything are now working ok (not very well but ok). Has there been anything big going on since the Deer Park release that I’m not aware of?

  8. David B. Haun Says:

    The 2005-06-07 links are now out of date and got pushed to the archive portion.

  9. Mugros Says:

    I have a nightly trunk from 6/21 and IMHO is FF getting worse. Often i can’t close tags with double click (extension) or the close-button. Sometimes FF starts with a blank tabs bar and is not working at all. If i open dozens of tabs FF becomes extremely slow and changing tabs takes seconds. It gets better with lesser tabs but older nightlies were better.

  10. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    As David said, these nightlies are now on http://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/ rather than on the normal FTP servers.

  11. VillageIdiot Says:

    Err… Sorry to be a prig about it, but is there a reason there hasn’t been an update to The Burning Edge lately?
