As would we all. Mozilla and Phoenix are behind schedule a bit, so the roadmaps are not accurate, as the dates have not been updated. 0.6 will be released when it is ready (blocker bugs gone, new name), and not before. If it were to be released before it was ready, it would, well, suck and none of us want that do we? I am not trying to be harsh, so dont take it that way. :)

Soon, real soon. For now just go get the latest nightly build. It's really slick.

i bet TBFKAP (The browser formerly known as Phoenix) 0.6 will be out in March. In the last two weeks or so the number of bugs has come down from more than 40 to 25... and most of them aren't really serious ones like "Phx registeres as HTML Editor" or "Phx creates a Mozilla folder".. stuff like that.

Be prepared dude... be prepared :)

Is this reproducible on NT/2000/XP as well, or is it only for 9x? If it affects only the 9x platform, then I wouldn't rush to call it a showstopper.

Its very hard to reproduce atleast i've never been able to intentionally do it. However i've had it happen in winXP and in win2k.

It is so rare that it should definitly not stop a milestone release IMHO.

Thanks for the response. When a bug is very hard to repro, it's sure even harder to fix it. If it's such a rare occasion, I agree it shouldn't be a showstopper even though it's reproducible with NT/2000/XP.

I have never ever seen the minimization bug. I just read a lot of the comments and learned that it hard to reproduce: either you see it rarely or you do some highly unusual things to try to break the browser. No way this bug should hold up Px 0.6.

--> you are so lucky =/


but it seems to me that Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030314 Phoenix/0.5 is free from this bug...


This bug is not always reproduce, sometimes it happens and sometime it doesn't (chance is 50/50 =/
Please forgive me for my poor English
