    I'm hearing reports that it's a little faster than the 1.0 build. I haven't installed it yet, so I can't confirm this. So anyway, for anyone who wants to check it out, here it is. :)

    Re: Firefox 1.0.1 candidate build

    well I installed this and now ff is broken...I can't even get the 1.0 build working!!!!!

    I've never had a problem with FF and now I'm screwed and don't know what to do...

    It said in the blog that you shouldn't install over a nightly but I didn't have a nightly installed I had regular old 1.0 installed...I'll keep trying things and install again to see if I get it back working at all

    EDIT...where is the saved passwords in the app data??? I don't want to lose that cause some of the sites in there I don't remember the passes too!!! I want to delete the content in the appdata so I can try and do a fresh install of FF and start from scratch but I don't want to lose the passwords (I already have my bookmarks saved)

    EDIT AGAIN...narrowed it down that something very bad is going on with my profile. I can get FF started with a fresh profile...like in my first edit I really just wanted my bookmarks and passwords...

    It works great for me, I can see however that they still didn't do anything with activex. Looks like I will have to use IE to get on my isp site. And not in the process of making this my default browser yet ...

    Johnny, I highly doubt Firefox is ever going to support ActiveX.
    There is a third-party plugin/extension/addon somewhere that does it, but I haven't ever tried it, so I don't know how it works. After all, IE's still around when I need it. :)

    Tuffgong: Sorry to hear that. I'm not sure what the problem could be. In any case, if you want to backup your profile data, here is what each of the files contains:
    * bookmarks.html - Bookmarks
    * formhistory.dat - Form AutoComplete history
    * history.dat - Firefox URL History
    * hostperm.1 - Cookie/image/extension-install permissions
    * cert8.db - Certificate Database
    * signons.txt - Passwords (you also need the next file)
    * key3.db - Passwords (you also need the previous file)
    * secmod.db - Security Modules Database
    * cookies.txt - Cookie settings
    * prefs.js and user.js - Saved Preferences

    Hope that helps. :)

    awesome net...I figured out that the 1.0.1 build wasn't at fault. I was noticing a few some theme problems earlier in the day and think that was my downfall...it just became apparent something was wrong when I went to use 1.01

    those files you posted was exactly what I needed to get FF working how I wanted

    one thing that i found that ie does that firefox doesnt, is multiple proxy support, like one for each dialup connection and one for the lan. firefox only has one so if i take my laptop to school lets say or anyone i installed firefox they would have change their proxy settings, can it be done like ie?

    Downloaded it last night and installed it this morning. I only used it for like 5 min and noticed that when i open a new window the lil green circle or w/e that goes next to the address bar flashes at the top of the window when i open it and then goes away. Nothin big just saying that i noticed that.

    actually, ie does not have a function like this, it is the internet options you can set for windows that let u set different proxies. ie just uses whatever you have set in the internet option, and itself has no capability of overriging the proxy setting. in ff, you can also set an auto detect, and it will (should) use the internet options settings from windows. in addition, ff can also override the internet options settings, so it is quite a bit more powerful.

    Hope this helps.

    Just downloaded it. Can someone help me with this. I suspect this error is from something else and not Firefox. I downloaded the new version and when I go to install I get the following

    1.) 17% Extracting
    2.) 7-Zip Data Error, which instruct me to press OK
    3.) I then get "Unspecified Error"

    I wish the update part of FF/Tools/Options would do the update.... but it has not worked for a number of releases. At least for me.

    I checked my system and see no spyware, viruses and malware, but you never know.

    PLEASE HELP.

    Sounds like the downloaded package was corrupted. Try redownloading it.

    Weird. I downloaded and installed it without a glitch. Open up the link in IE and try downloading the installer through that. It definitely sounds like a corrupted package, but I can't figure out why.
