(Yeah, I screwed up the name in the thread title... sigh.)

The Mozilla Firefox .8 (formerly Firebird) web browser was released today. The FAQ about the name change includes:


Won't this confuse people?

Yes, but if the WWF can pull it off, so can we. Besides, in six months you'll forget there ever was any other name.


It's a great browser whatever they wish to call it, and I recommend it to any Windows/Mac/Linux user looking for a fast browser with lots of features.

The Den of the Firefox was one of the first, influential BBS systems that I was ever a part of.

I think the statute of limitations has passed, anyway

The newest release of Thunderbird (you have to love any program named after a bum wine) 0.5 is pretty sweet as well.

I'm liking the new release of Firefox, as well as the new brand-spanking-new logo. I've always like Firebird/Firefox as a slimmed down, sleaker version of Mozilla. Though I have been reluctant to use it full-time in it's current beta state. In a couple of years it should be top-notch and a contender to any browser out there.

OK...one question. I'm trying this out after years of the IE monkey on my back. It's a pretty slick little browser, and I definitely like the built in pop up blocking.

However, for sites like Uproar or other Java based games, it won't open them it keeps wanting to download them. I'd appreciate a little advice in the regards....be nice I'm new to the "alterna-browsers".

Other than that, I've been getting faster page loads, more control of it's appearance...it's a nice alternative.

Some sites are poorly designed and only really work on IE. Don't let that stop you though - if you must use IE for those sites, send them feedback complaining about the inconvenience.

Remember, IE only sites are a flaw, not a feature. Don't let anyone BS and tell you otherwise.

//edit: Link up the sites you are having a problem with, I'll check into this and try to make it work on my system here.

Thank you for the help...this one was user error.

If I had been paying attention, Uproar has a "Start" link in their games as wall as a link to download the "play at home" versions [/humiliation]

Still going well so far, this has been very stable and I haven't run across any problems yet.
