User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030210 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.3b) Gecko/20030210 1.3b uses a syntax for local files in the form file:///Volumes/harddisk/path_to_file while 1.2.1 uses file:///harddisk/path_to_file. This is not really a problem as long as you do not need to use 1.2.1 in OS 9 and use the same user profile for both versions. But when you do and you have a local file as startup-page this is very annoying. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Define a local file as startup page 2.Launch 1.2.1 or 1.3b and select this as startup page in preferences. 3.Save and quit 4.Startup in the other version (regardless whether in OSX or OS9) Actual Results: Default startup page (Welcome to Mozilla.org) is displayed. There is also an incompatibility in the preferences between 1.2.1 and 1.3b regarding the settings for tabbed browsing. Sometimes (not always) these setting are set back to default when changing between versions.
install the 1.2.1 macho build ? I use the easy way : this is a error in the classic build. This can't be fixed since 1.2.1 is the last classic build. Mozilla.org provides now only macho builds -> wontfix
