    302136 landed on trunk, would imagine it will land on branch very soon.

  2. Hank Roberts Says:

    Which one is this, or is it something else again?

  3. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    1.6a is trunk.

  4. LDR Says:

    Any idea when the app update will go back to updating to the latest branch, instead of trunk?

  5. Jug Says:

    I like the Download Manager fix! :D

    And now they just checked in the fix to bug 258285 too (“Find Toolbar sometimes appears (pops up) when typing/entering arbitrary characters in textareas/form input fields, FAYT (find as you type) activated”):



  6. CooLynX Says:

    Btw, since when themes and extensions does not work anymore? I was off for two weeks and missed something. :(

  7. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    Extensions don’t work on trunk, but I’m not having any trouble with them on branch.

  8. CooLynX Says:

    Yep, thanx, now got back all extensions and themes with this branch build. :)
    Ahh, but no more scrollbars. :D

  9. Pat Says:

    All the major regressions ( 303267 , 302136 , 304590) have been fixed! They should show on the brach soon hopefully next build!

    If they can get a fix for extensions and themes quickly the next nightly build will be a sweet one :-)

    note: not a very good idea to switch between trunk and branch frequently, especially with the extension bug. broke all of my extensions and had to reinstall them after going from trunk to branch (which i have been doing lately), and some ill have to edit in order to force them to work again (gmail notifier for one). could always just create a different profile for both, but meh im lazy.
