Firefox 1.0 is finally here. For those who have been following it's progress, it's been a long time coming. But your work is not done yet. Because it is now safe to recommend Firefox to non-geeks. Please do so. They need your help. Think of the children.
The Mozilla servers are currently getting hammered, but you can grab the installer in a few seconds using the torrents:
When you live on the west coast and stroll on into work at 10am, you usually miss these types of early morning announcements. I actually heard about it on the radio this morning. Then I hit the snooze button.
Oh yeah, check out the new default start page.
The Google Firefox page is here:
Notice the trailing slash... :-P
You can't include the slash at the end of the start page link -- it returns a 404 otherwise right now.
Incidentally, the default bookmarks have this problem too. I filed a bug for m.o to properly set up the redirect. (Search for start page in Firefox>Web Site to get it.)
Mid-air collision, it seems... ;-)
I live in germany and the words for advanced search are longer and also, messing up the lines that surrounds the form...
Very Very Very good, Firefox is my predefinited browser on windows and linux!
I am in the process of trying to figure out how to use an internet radio station. Let me say that in the past I have been able to access this particular station when using Internet Explorer. The Internet Explorer I was using became corrupt and a real bother to use so rather than trying to re-load the entire windows Internet Exploroer I decided to try an alternate web browser namely Firefox 1.0.
When I first started with Firefox I believed that the change-over was seemless. I still really like Firefox but I have since discovered a glitch. That being I cannot get into the aforementioned radio station at this time. Instead, I get the following message "Additional plugins are required to display all the media on this page"
What do I do? I have Windows ME and not XP - so far I have only been able to come up with XP related stuff.
Thank you for your assistance!!
