    Release delayed a week to deal with 'large number' of bugs; final still due in Q1 Mozilla Corp. said yesterday that it will delay the third beta of Firefox 3.1, citing a "large number" of remaining bugs as the reason for the slip. The setback won't affect the final release date for Firefox 3.1, a company executive said. "Right now, we're not expecting this to delay our shipping target of late in the first quarter," said Mike Beltzner, director of Firefox, said in an e-mail today. Firefox 3.1 Beta 3, which until this week was slated to launch on Jan....

  • The Next and Final Firefox 2.0 Update Rolls Back Phishing Protection (3.0.5 expected mid-December)

    Mozilla just a couple of days ago updated Firefox to version, and used this occasion to advise users to upgrade to Firefox 3.0.4 (the latest Firefox build). At the time Mozilla said that it will issue just one more update, Firefox, but now we find out that one of the features that made Firefox so popular back in the day, phishing protection, will not be included in this final update. To my mind this is just one more reason to update. Mike Beltzner explains: “The latest published update for Firefox 2, which is version, has the Phishing...

    How did this happen? Today I downloaded and installed Mozilla Firefox 3.0. Mozilla had been nagging me for some time to do this, so I finally figured that today I had time, and I went ahead with it. I have been a Firefox user for a few years and have had zero trouble with it. As I was messing around with it late this evening I found that the homepage icon on the toolbar was connected to "My Barack". Imagine my disgust. I have NEVER visited this site in my life, and I certainly did not choose this as...

    I'm forced to use Opera today (not such a bad thing, but) because last night Firefox started acting weird. Clicking more than once on ANYTHING in Firefox causes it to freeze, and nothing works but hitting CTRL ALT DEL, then canceling out, and you can click again. Once. Or twice if I'm lucky. Anyone else having this issue?

    I keep getting asked how I download and convert youtube and other videos, so I offer you this tutorial. You will need Ubuntu 6.06 or higher (this was done on 7.10), as I haven't attempted this with anything lower. I refer to Mozilla, but any Mozilla derivative, such as FireFox, will work. All Terminal COMMANDS will be in red. You will need to have ffmpeg installed. Open up your Synaptic Package Manager... Type in your password to access the Manager... Type in ffmpeg... Click on the box, and mark it for installation... Click Accept, to confirm installation... Good. Now close...

    Mozilla has officially made history with a new Guinness world record for the largest number of software downloads in a 24-hour period. The final record breaking 8,002,530 downloads for Firefox 3.0 took place in June with parties in over 25 countries. "The enthusiasm and creativity of Firefox fans was key to making this happen" said Marketing head Paul Kim. Gareth Deaves of Guinness World Records called it "an extremely impressive accomplishment". The official figure was confirmed after logs from download servers were audited and checked to ensure duplicate and unfinished downloads were not counted. Mr Kim told the BBC: "The...

But he doesn't merely avert his gaze. A machinist and self-described "blue-collar guy" in his mid-50s from upstate New York, Rick752, as he's known online, spends most nights upstairs in his den assembling a list of Internet ad sites and related data. That work, dubbed EasyList, enables millions of Web surfers to filter and freeze out nearly all advertising that would otherwise appear on their screens.

    Two of the four major browsers have undergone some big changes in the past two weeks. Firefox 3 is, of course, the big news of the week, pulling down eight million or so downloads in its first 24 hours in the wild. However, the Opera browser updated to its much-awaited version 9.5 last week. Since both of them have got game but for different reasons, let's take a look at how they match up. Empirically, the two most-cited complaints about browsers are speed and memory. Now, I'm a big fan of Firefox because it's so easy to customize, so...

    A new version of the Firefox Web browser is scheduled for release Tuesday with improvements in security, speed and design. Many of the enhancements in Firefox 3 involve bookmarks. The new version lets Web surfers add keywords, or tags, to sort bookmarks by topic. A new "Places" feature lets users quickly access sites they recently bookmarked or tagged and pages they visit frequently but haven't bookmarked. There's also a new star button for easily adding sites to your bookmark list-similar to what's already available on Microsoft Corp.'s Internet Explorer 7 browser. Other new features include the ability to resume downloads...
