Please put your additions/corrections for the M14 Release Notes here
Support 800x600 screens in release notes layout.
For bug 28216: On Linux, it is possible to get into a state where the drag-and-drop cursor (a right angle pointing to the lower left) doesn't go away. In such a sitaution it is not possible to invoke menus or switch windows by clicking or using the Alt-tab key combination. The workaround is to kill Mozilla by switching to a virtual console (e.g., Ctrl-Alt-1), logging in, and entering "killall -9 mozilla-bin".
For bug 28670: Mozilla may not display scrollbars on certain frames-based pages. To make scrollbars reappear, press the Reload button.
From bug http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28856: "When you compose a message and there are more than 3 or so recipients in the addressing area, you will not see a scroll bar to be able to scroll back to the names you have entered. There is not a workaround for this at this time."
Bug 8290: The applet tag with the align parameter crashes the browser
for bug 28931: M14 build on WinNT only: The following error should immediately show up at the end of the install when it tries to launch mozilla.exe: mozilla.exe - Unable To Locate DLL The dynamic link library nspr3.dll could not be found in the specified path... This error message will appear when you launch mozilla.exe twice. The third time the message does not show up.
Bug 29157: DOM1 table.createCaption(); crashes mozilla
Bug 28843: Browser crashes upon trying to add a new panel to Sidebar.There is no workaround for this problem. This problem appears intermittently on all platforms.
bug 28241: on Windows, when opening the Open Web Location dialog to go to a page where you have saved a username/password (via Single Signon), the browser would crash when the Password dialog (for your Single Signon "master password") simultaneously appears. Workarounds: This might not happen if you've already entered your master password earlier during your session (eg, opening the Signon Viewer from Tasks > Autofill > Display Signons menu, etc.). Moreover, entering a URL in the Location field in the toolbar completely avoids this issue.
bug 24817: No filename generated for index files when downloading.
bug 21952: Unable to turn off auto-loading of images.
Bug 18567: Java applets don't work in browser
dunno if this is a non-issue with the M14 bits that'll be release, but in case it is: bug 29166: Navigator prefs: selecting "Use last page viewed" will make waterson's homepage *your* homepage. if this occurs for you, don't use this feature.
bug 28436, linux: might not be able to set a master password on a new profile.
Windows only - bug 28949 - The first time you visit a secure web site each Netscape 6 session, a popup dialog box will ask you to manually load psm.exe. That file is located in Program Files\Common Files\Netscape Shared\Security.
bug 22536: Mac only, View > Use Stylesheets not implemented.
ugh, another addendum to bug 22536: the menu items appear active, but they really aren't.
bug 27748: on Linux, you can't enter your password into basic HTTP authentication dialogs. This makes logging in to password-protected (using htaccess) sites impossible.
bug 27428: because of the fix for this bug, you will need to remove/change the following preference (in your prefs.js file) since it will then be a read as a string (incorrect) when it is now actually an integer (correct): user_pref("browser.screen_resolution", "96"); for example in the above line you could either remove it from prefs.js altogether, or just remove the double quotes around the number. if you cannot get prefs to load at all, you could also just remove your prefs.js (remember to save an old copy!) and a new one wit correct int type will be created.
Vera, Is it too late to add something to M14 release notes? A nasty bug - one fixed in first M15 build - slipped through- I have made notes here in case the pages on mozilla can be updated. Grace When attempting to create a profile and choosing a custom directory for storage of the profile information, user will crash when they press finish Workaround is to use default directory for profiles bug 27573 also on Linux only-first profile created is not saved, creating a second profile is necessary. Bug 28243- same situation - in process of being fixed when M14 was going out
