  Mozilla Firefox - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mozilla Firefox retains the cross-platform nature of the original Mozilla browser by using the XUL user interface markup language.
Firefox 1.5 also includes a backlog of bug fixes that were fixed between the 0.9 and the 1.0 release which were previously unavailable due to branching from the trunk around the 0.9 release.
Mozilla Firefox Version 1.5.0.2 was officially released as a universal binary.

 Features of Mozilla Firefox - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Firefox was given this feature early in beta development, and it was a major comparative selling point of the browser until Internet Explorer gained the capability in the Windows XP Service Pack 2 beta.
Firefox uses the same profile format on the different platforms, so a profile may be used on multiple platforms, if all of the platforms can access the same profile (e.g., profile stored on a FAT32 partition accessible from both Windows and Linux).
Firefox and Internet Explorer both employ graphical user interfaces (GUIs), and in both cases there is the risk that a user may be fooled by misunderstanding the interface or the displayed information in a way that puts them at risk (this is a general risk of GUI-based web browsers).

 c3's InSide Scoup
The Mozilla Firefox project was begun by Dave Hyatt and Blake Ross as an experimental branch of the Mozilla project.
Firefox 1.5 will resync the code-base of the release builds (as opposed to nightly builds) with the core "trunk" which contains additional features not available in 1.0, as it branched from the trunk around the 0.9 release.
Firefox uses the same format to store users' profiles (which contain their personal browser settings) even on different operating systems, so a profile may be used on multiple platforms, so long as all of the platforms can access the profile (e.g., the profile is stored on a FAT32 partition accessible from both Windows and Linux).

 Paul Thurrott's SuperSite for Windows: Target IE: A look at Internet Explorer alternatives (Part 1)
In Firefox (and Mozilla), you can optionally open links (Figure 6) in a second browser page, which is accessed via a tab in the UI, like the tabs you see in a notebook (Figure 7).
But Firefox's themes are more sophisticated than those in the fuller suite, because they can be applied on the fly without rebooting the application (as is required by Mozilla), and they are configured through a full-featured Theme manager (Figure 16).
Mozilla also includes a similar Extension manager (Figure 17) which lets you manage Mozilla Extensions, small add-ons that extend the functionality of the Web browser in unique ways.

 The Andrew Turnbull Mozilla Network: Questions and Answers   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
Mozilla's Macintosh software development began to focus exclusively on Mac OS X around December 2002, when Firefox (then called Phoenix) was in its infancy and before it began to officially be made available for the Macintosh.
Although official development of Mozilla releases for Mac OS 9.2.2 and earlier versions was discontinued in early 2003, unofficial builds of the software for this platform continued to be compiled and made available through Mozilla 1.3.1.

 Mozilla Firefox 1.5 Release Notes
This is because Firefox changes from release to release and as such the ways in which some extensions integrate changes, meaning there can be problems when running an older extension with a newer version of Firefox.
Firefox 1.5 may hang when closing after viewing a PDF file in some older versions of the Adobe Acrobat Reader plug in.
If Firefox 1.5 is installed to a location with spaces in the path, it may not be able to set itself as default browser and may keep prompting at startup.

 mozdev.org - multizilla: index
Current Mozilla builds make use of this idea but it is only partly integrated by the Mozilla team, so MultiZilla still has lots of extra features that cannot be found in today's Mozilla builds (although Firefox adds even more MultiZilla features like middle-click on bookmarks and some of the tab group features).
Not a single soul at the #mozilla channel on irc.mozilla.org liked his idea of having a tabbed UI in mozilla but HJ didn't stop, determined as he is, and continued his work, but still needed a new place for his project.
Mozilla Firefox has even more of MultiZilla's functionality included and there are also some people who copied some of MultiZilla's features for Mozilla Firefox extensions.

 Mozilla Firefox 0.8 - Software Reality
Firefox has emerged as a real contender to pick up the browser wars from where Netscape fell.
With Firefox, all the years of effort that have gone into throwing out the original Netscape "shodware" source code and rewriting it from scratch seem to have finally paid off.
Also, Mozilla and Firefox take more screen estate (thick, clunky toolbars) and you can't resize these "huge" buttons unless you download a custom theme for small buttons written by someone else that looks quite ugly or draw your own theme if you have plenty of time to spare.

We've been following Firefox on the 10.4 Macs for about a year now and, with v1.5, decided it was again time to try to get it to work on Panther (for about the 4th time).
Another comment I'll make is while Firefox barebones is simple to use, once you begin adding extensions (without the extensions it pretty basic and hardly competitive with other Mac browsers) things get complex quickly.
