    Awesome ... just installed it.

    It has some of the great features from Phoenix like notifying you when it blocks popups with a little status bar icon.
    There are some new options in Preferences to tweak TypeAhead and to enable Prefetching for faster page loads.
    Now it has the automatic image-resize feature of IE too.

    It just keeps getting better :D

    Mozilla betas are usually quite stable ... I was using 1.2b for a long time before 1.2.1 was released.

    1.3b hasn't crashed on me yet. :)

    Woke up a bit now.

    Got it downloaded and installed. Works a treat, Chatzilla's even got its own options now! sidebuttons on my mouse are working perfectly, the type ahead config saves me pressing "/" before using it every time. Pop-up blocking looks a lot easier to use now.
    Havent ran into the image resize yet tho but i hate that feature on IE anyway :)

    Me thinks me waits a bit longer after what happened when 1.2 was upgraded from beta.

    I'll let you lot sort it out. :p

    Umm ... if anyone is using 1.3 beta, are you able to open .jpg attachments on the forum?

    It brings up the save/open dialog box for me. I had this problem with Phoenix 0.5 ... I sure hope it's not going to stay like this in Moz 1.3 :confused:

    yeah, i said it for fun :rolleyes:


    NetRyder, yes, I had the same problem, with quite a few different pages actually :\
    I've just un-installed 1.3b and put 1.2.1 back on, as nice as all the new features may be, I can't put up with all those bugs.

    Has anyone using Phoenix 0.5 noticed this bug too?

    Yeah... i got the jpeg problem... Its because the forum uses a php script to retrieve the locally stored file. Thats whats stuffing it up. I've learned to live with it. Not like i open that many jpegs on this forum myself
