Firefox 1.0

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:
http://www.google.com/firefox
Not there:
http://www.google.com/firefox/

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.)

Hi Folks:

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!!
