    Anyone else notice problems with Print Preview, like switching from Portrait to Landscape and visa-versa?

  2. avih Says:

    are there really no more blocking bugs? if there are, it would be nice to see them on this page…

    nice to see that page updated frequently again. well done jesse :)

  3. CooLynX Says:

    There is one thing that interests me a lot – how to the devs upload files in bugzilla or any other place if all ff1.0+ builds crashes on file uploads?

  4. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    There are about a hundred blocking bugs. I’m not going to list them all in each Burning Edge post ;)

  5. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    CooLynX, I haven’t encountered such a crash.

  6. CooLynX Says:

    Hmm, strange. Looks like I have to remake my profile again – it does not crash with clean profile. ;)

  7. Artem Tashkinov Says:

    From August 23 Jesse no longer mentions what’s going on in trunk. I wonder if mentioned branch bug fixes are also in trunk.

  8. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    CooLynX, if you can figure out what in your profile caused the crash, please file a bug report.

  9. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    Almost all branch fixes also go into the trunk. The trunk also gets fixes that the branch doesn’t get, of course.

    One exception was that FeedView was removed from the branch, but remains on the trunk so that it can be made to not suck for Firefox 2.0.

  10. Jan Söderback Says:

    CooLynx, are you using the Sessionsaver extension. I had the same problem as you and removing that extension solved it.

  11. CooLynX Says:

    Jan Söderback, yes I am using Session saver and had a guess that it is causing me a problems but did not have a chance to test it yet.

  12. amake Says:

    What are the updates being offered for nighlies via the built-in update feature? The “more info” link provided doesn’t go anywhere.

  13. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    amake, they should be new nightlies. For Gecko 1.8 branch builds, it should update you to the newest Gecko 1.8 branch build, and similarly for trunk builds.

  14. CooLynX Says:

    Now I can confirm, that upload problems was caused by Session saver. :(
    Jan Söderback, do you have an alternative for it?
