Please can you add a download to your website so that I can download just the
browser, without the other parts so that it is a smaller file which takes less
time. (I'm using a 56k modem for internet access)

there's no net installer as on Linux, you may want to try Firefox:
For what it's worth, my mailnews source is 14 MB, and my whole source tree is
203MB.  You wouldn't save much downloading.

The mozilla product includes all the element you list, and the size of the
source is 34 Mo (net install is not relevant to source download and anyway
doesn't change the size of what you have to download).

If you want only a browser, you need to download Firefox instead.

Unfortunately, the source for Firefox is almost just as big as the one for
Mozilla (32 Mo).

It might be that some element that are not necessary are included in the source,
so trimming the source package to only include what is really needed would be
It may me too that as according comment #2, the part of the source for Mozilla
that is not required for browser is rather small, so that the package is already
correctly trimmed down. 

If not, and the Firefox source package really includes unrequired element, this
bug should be changed to Firefox/website and confirmed.

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

WONTFIX -- we're not going to provide an optimized source tarball for every
possible combination of build options.
