Looks like it is fixed :) But you probably knew that anyway...

EDIT: Now bug #299284 is causing build failures... :( You should know, you filed the bug...

^ Yes, but it seems like I did not provide enough information to the developers.
Complete build log posted and Mento is on it... :)

powerbook,

have you seen madfox? it's an optimized build by a guy in china, i believe. just wondering if you knew the differences between the two optimized builds.

mgiannul. This madfox is totally unknown to me, so I have no idea what new features it contains.
I really dont care either. ;)

Powerbook,

I know you are doing a great job! But hey, why don't we take a look at it. We have nothing to lose. If it's for the betterment of everybody, maybe we could adopt some of it's features. So far I don't like the icon. Middle click doesn't work. But I think it can render IE based web sites better.

mark143 and mgiannul.
I wont stop you from testing the Madfox browser, but I will personally stay clear.

Why?
* I dont use release builds (Madfox 0.3.2 update 1 = Firefox 1.0.4 + some additional code).
* I follow the Trunk development tight.
* I provide G4 optimized Firefox Trunk builds to "the masses".
* I dont have the knowledge to port the Madfox specific source code to Firefox Trunk.
* Sites who dont work properly in Firefox, but work fine in IE, are broken. The website should be fixed, not the browser accessing them!

Thank you. :)

LOL

Feel free to give it a real test. Then if you feel there are features in it that you want in Firefox, post a bug report and let the developers decide.

This build rocks - I've been using it for weeks now, starting on day one, since I got my first Mac, ever :)

Anyways, there is only ONE thing that is absolutely ticking me off about this build, and if it was fixed, then I would be forever grateful :)

The dreaded bug listed here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=289973 :D

My builds now include the 'Pretty Form Widgets' by phiw13.
While we wait for Josh Aas to port Cocoa widgets (link) to Firefox, I decided to add these to my builds.

Thank you Philippe! :)
