Op de site van Mozilla Firebird is versie 0.6 te downloaden. Deze release heeft als codename Glendale en stamt net zoals Galeon en K-Meleon af van Mozilla, maar is geschreven in XUL. De release notes zien er als volgt uit:
- New default theme
Mozilla Firebird 0.6 sports a crisp, fresh and attractive theme, based on the amazing Qute theme by Arvid Axelsson. Also, the new theme has icons for the Bookmark Manager toolbar.
- Redesigned Preferences window
The new Options window puts the most often used preferences into seven convenient panels, each with a descriptive icon selector.
- Improved Privacy Options
With a single click (and a confirmation) you can clear all privacy data including form data, history, cache, cookies, etc.
- Improved Bookmarks
Among other bookmark enhancements, the Bookmarks menu now features a context menu. Try it by right-clicking on a bookmark in the menu.
- Talkback enabled
You are now able to submit Talkback information when Mozilla Firebird crashes, which makes it much easier for developers to fix critical bugs. For more information read about Talkback in the FAQ.
- Automatic Image Resizing
With this feature, Mozilla Firebird shrinks any image that is bigger than the window to make the whole image visible. When this is done, the cursor over the image changes to tell you that if you click, the image is restored to full size. Instructions on how to disable this feature can be found here.
- Smooth Scrolling
Instructions on how to disable this feature can be found here.
- Access to more preferences
You are now able to edit lots of advanced preferences that are not exposed in the Options window by entering about:config in the location bar and press Enter.
- Profile Chrome
You can now install Mozilla Firebird extensions in your own profile folder instead of in the actual program folder. This means that you will be able to upgrade to new versions of Mozilla Firebird without losing all your extensions. Note that it's up to the extension authors to allow their extensions to use this functionality. Some extensions may not offer this as an option yet.
- Mac OS X
Mozilla Firebird is available for Mac OS X. It's still quite rough around the edges but it's a start.
- Lots of bug fixes
There have been too many bug fixes since Phoenix 0.5 to keep track of them all. It's better. Trust us ;-)
