I just noticed that a "candidates-1.1b" folder has appeared today in the nightly folder. Is the official SeaMonkey 1.1b release imminent?

So far in a few minutes of use, I notice that inline spell check now has a dictionary. Cool! Anymore new features for us to play with for 1.1b?

Gulp! I still need to close in on that crazy mouse bug and the browser.link.open.restriction change!

I'd really love to see "Crazy Mouse" fixed in 1.1. This is by far the bug that bugs me most, and I see it multiple times a day.

I wonder if Sancho is a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_sock_puppet">sock puppet</a> of BenoitRen.

It saddens me that you think I do such things, CTho.

LOL. No, I consider myself being a human individual plagued by bug #294060. :D That's all.

Agreed.
You see, Chris has this alter ego - named Thumper.
He simply forgot to log in using that nym before he posted :wink:.


Kidding aside, Chris, any thoughts on this & the associated bug?

Illegal operation in Windows Media Player plugin

In short, having JavaScript disabled & visiting sites that use the WMP plugin often causes SeaMonkey crashes.
At some point, the crashes STOPPED - cold.
Some change, intentional or not, fixed this situation.
Though, on any 1.1b builds after 6-19-2006, the crashes are back.

Also of note, & what may have been missed, is that this is not being seen if you have WMP 11 installed.
WMP 10 crashes, WMP 11 does not.

Crazy mouse? I think very few people see it.

vladmir PMed me a couple of days ago with a link to an illustration of the crazy mouse. If you have Flash, you can view it. I don't, so...

May be this is not a crazy mouse, but this is a bug (regression).
And I see this every day for every link with title.(

And
Bug 312287
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=312287
"Cannot open local htm file if its path has non-ASCII character"
is the bug, which doesn't let use SM for a lot of people.

As I said, I see "Crazy Mouse" daily. Open a bunch of links in new tabs via middle mouse button, and sooner or later the cursor will go crazy. Switch to another tab and back, and it's OK again.

I also have seen this on other machines and installations than mine. But I have never ever seen this all the years when I used Mozilla 1.1 up to 1.7.x, so it must be some sort of regression. It's really annoying. :(

If I remember correctly, the crazy mouse regression is from May 2005. Back then it was much more visible, and got fixed, but not entirely...
And
Bug 312287
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=312287
"Cannot open local htm file if its path has non-ASCII character"
is the bug, which doesn't let use SM for a lot of people.

Looks like this fix got ported to branch a couple days ago. :D

I also notice the "crazy mouse" bug every now and then on both my home and work computers. Both are running WinXP, and I use SeaMonkey 1.0.5 on one and SeaMonkey 1.1 nightlies on the other. Something interesting that I noticed is that you only need to hover over the tab bar to correct the problem (clicking is not necessary).
