Release Notes

M7 Release Notes


Features landed


  • Mac-specific
    • Context menus are far less buggy. We have checked in fixes for almost every serious context menu bug.
    • Many fixes to the clipboard and drag services. We now support promised file dragging. Clipboard and drag operations in Places work much better.
    • Support for Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) has been removed. Gecko 1.9 will no longer build or run on Mac OS X 10.3.
    • Several other stability, security, and general bug fixes.
  • Shutdown Performance
    • Users that keep a browser history longer than the default may experience a significant delay on first-shutdown, as the history table is rebuilt to fix bug 371800. This should not affect users that have not changed their history preference from the default (9 days). More information is available in bug 319455.
  • Master password
    • A bug in this release makes it so changing the master password will cause Firefox to forget all saved passwords (bug 390451). Workaround: change the master password back to the original.
  • Privacy / History
    • Remembering visited pages default changed from 9 days to 180 days (bug 332748).

  • If you use the firefox password manager and also use a master password, and then you change your master password, you will loose all your remembered passwords. (bug 390451)
  • Unix/X11 specific
    • Browser-side support for windowless plugins (bug 137189). (Plugin-side support is required.)
