About: mozilla corporation - home of the firefox web browser and thunderbird email client

Installed fine


Interesting, now we have a new domain, mozilla.com , wonder what's the real difference between that and the old mozilla.org ?

i regret to report that there appears to be some serious s in ff 1.5 re the rte box.   If you intend to do a lot of item building and editing in fastblogit using FireFox, you may want to delay your install untill i can get a handel on this.

I noticed the problem with the apostrophe in the previous one.

I noticed the problem with the apostrophe in the previous one.
that was unrelated.  it had been there all along.

Seth says
... or even better comment on this item. i just saw the symptoms again when i was trying to edit. so seems to relate to dbtobox ?

Seth says
a comprehensive list of 1.5 added features


Mark de LA says
When I installed FF1.5 the i couldn't get back the old one until closed all the old ones & visa versa. There must be some overlap even though I installed them in separate directories. This entry is the new 1.5 from the RTE.  The only thing I notice is that the default font seems different.  One thing I noticed is that my mouseovers seem to work now.

Seth says
strange, ,  the bug in rte in ff seems to have dissapeared.  Perhaps it was something corrupted in the ff javascript memory.  Anyway here were the symptoms that i was experiecing and that cannot now reproduce:
  • inability to insert image from the web - it just dissapeared
  • markup for default font was not present
  • in general almost all of the markup for the rte was not there when went into html mode
But those symptoms went away after killing all ff windows and bringing ff in again. 

If you expeience any of these symptoms with ff, please report them ... in this tag room $bug,ff1.5,rte .

Seth says
... try inserting a image from the web during the editing of an item.

Lets see if this article on the kidnap of peace activists works here.

Winnie 2005-11-30 18:47:57 2192 Which FF do I have? I have the one you helped me put on my computer. Could you explain what you are talking about? Should I not update because of a ?
you can check which version you have by clicking help / about Mozilla Firefox.  The problem seems to only appear with version 1.5 which was just released on 11-30-2005.   The version i installed for you was earlier much earlier.   As far as i can tell the problem only arises if you edit items.   

And, yes, I would advise not updating untill i can get a better handel on what the problem is. 

Mark de LA says
Apparently the FF 1.5 in conjunction with the google search bar with it's spell checker has a bug (the spell checker doesn't play well with the RTE).
