Mozilla FireFox v1.1

Mozilla Firefox project (formerly Firebird, which was formerly Phoenix) is a redesign of Mozilla's browser component, written using the XUL user interface language and designed to be cross-platform.

It is small, fast and easy to use, and offers many advantages over other web browsers, such as the tabbed browsing and the ability to block pop-up windows.

Please note that this a preview build of FireFox v1.1 code named as Deer Park v1.0 and this is a Alpha Build.


"Sanitize" privacy feature

The "Sanitize" feature provides an easy way to quickly remove browsing history, cookies, cache, saved form information, and other personal data.

The items to be removed can be customized, and the feature can be activated using either a keyboard shortcut or through a menu item.

Image thumbnails as tab icons

When viewing images, tab icons now display thumbnails of the displayed image.

Fast back (and forward)

This very experimental feature allows much faster session history navigation.

The feature is off by default but can be enabled for testing purposes by setting the browser.sessionhistory.max_viewers preference to a nonzero number.

Anonymous FTP login failure behaviour

FTP users are now prompted to input a name and password if anonymous access fails.

CSS at-rule for matching on site/document URL

The new @-moz-document rule gives users the ability to match page objects per-site, using CSS.

This makes it possible to include site-specific rules in user style sheets (userContent.css).

David Baron's post to www-style explains how the rule can be used.

Report a broken website wizard

Users now have a simple tool for reporting websites that aren't working in Firefox. If installed (Reporter is a custom install option for this release) the tool can be accessed from "Report Broken Website" on the Firefox Help menu.

Improved Preferences

Instant Apply behaviour on Linux and Mac Changes made in the Preferences window now apply immediately, in line with typical behaviour in other Mac OS X and GNOME applications.

This changes conforms with the Apple and GNOME Human Interface Guidelines.

Searchable download actions manager

You are now able to search through Firefox's file associations for downloaded files by program name or their file extension.

Searchable cookie manager

Cookies can be searched by hostname/domain and cookie name, and are organized by hostname in a tree format instead of a flat list.


Firefox MSI package

- The new MSI installation package facilitates distibuted installation and provides greater flexibility to network administrators wanting to deploy Firefox in a corporate environment.

- Support for profile "temp" directory on local filesystem

- It is now possible to store the network cache (copies of visited webpages) and the XUL fastload cache (precompiled user interface code) on a local disk, while keeping the rest of the profile data on a network drive.

- This will increase performance and reduce network traffic for users in a network environment.

Drag and drop
Users can now drag more file types to the Dock icon to open in the browser
