    Wow! Some great improvements there! Love the find-in-textareas and the improved password functionality.

    Peter Kasting, for fixing bug 189039, you win 3 internets, flowers and free coffee or booze forever. Consolation chocolates to RBS for trying to fix it 3 years ago. I really really hope it gets into Firefox 2 (from the comments in the bug, it looks like some of the drivers want it to go in). This may sound a bit jerk-ish, but I would be perfectly happy if they delayed the Fx2 beta to get this in.

    The only thing that would make it even better is if they could sneak it it into an point to 1.8.0.x, but since it actually changes established behaviours I know why they cannot and will not.

    *crosses fingers and toes*

    Thanks J. McNair :)

    I need to get a branch version of the patch written. If I’m lucky I can get it in today before the B1 code freeze. The drivers are pretty keen to have this in Fx2 so I think it will make it. Not going into a 1.5 release though.

  4. J. McNair Says:

    Woohoo! It landed on the branch! *uncrosses fingers and toes and does a small happy dance*

    Um, thanks for making my fave browser MUCH MORE USEFUL.
