OK... so... what has happened to official nightly builds for Win32?? Nothing yesterday... so far, none today.

Actually, I am running Aebrahim's latest build. The only reason I wanted to see an official nightly is to see if a certain bug, Bug #223650, has been fixed. Supposedly, it has. However, it still exists with Aebrahim's builds.

Now that IS wild. I signed up for a myfastmail.com account and tried composing a message and got the same error, which is certainly a bizarro one.

BTW, that bugzilla entry doesn't say it's fixed yet.

No, but on 11/16, Phil Schwartau posted an entry on that bug saying:

Phil Schwartau wrote:OK, the fix for bug 225289 has been checked in today. So with
tomorrow's builds, the www.myfastmail.com site should work.

If anyone gets a chance, they can try this and report back -


Apparently, Bug #225289 is the real culprit. And, supposedly, it has been fixed.

So, I've been wanting to test it with official nightlies. Of course, there haven't been any for the last two days. Aebrahim's build still has the Fastmail problem.

I have since downloaded and installed the latest Mozilla nightly. It still has the Fastmail problem as well. So, I guess the problem lies somewhere other than bug #225289.

BTW... since there have been nightlies for Mozilla the last two days, how come none for Firebird? Can anyone answer? :)

The Fastmail bug is gone. :) One of the Fastmail developers, Rob Mueller, made a change to the javascript on the Compose screen. It seems to have solved the problem.

Logon to your fastmail account, open the Compose screen and press CTRL-F5 to force a refresh. The refresh is necessary to get the javascript change. You only need to do it once.

Yup, it works now. Seems to have been a problem with how the javascript processes empty matches.

Hopefully, a check to prevent this sort of thing will eventually make its way into Firebird's code base.
