About this language pack

Mozilla Firefox is the slimline sibling of the Mozilla Suite, designed for the non-technical end-user who just wants a browser (and furthermore, one that just Does The Right Thing).


Firefox 0.8

Change of name, a fair few differences from 0.7 structurally. I'd missed a "filling out" in 0.7.

(2004-Mar-02) Bother. And a "Save link to Disk" in the 0.8 pack released in February.

Firebird 0.7

First release, based vaguely on the pack for Mozilla 1.5. There are few similarities under the bonnet.

What I’ve used:

To Do:

Testing for bugs, speeling mistooks and remaining Americanisms on all platforms; keeping pace with the new releases of Firefox; pack for Thunderbird.

How you can help:

Email me if you spot any errors: moz_en-gb<AT>tyndall<DOT>org<DOT>uk - that’s not a clickable link, but an obfuscated mailto: link using Javascript is available in the page footer - just click on my name, and as long as you have a Javascript-enabled browser, you should be able to contact me. The obfuscation code is freely available from [ Jim Tucek’s website ].
