This is the release notes catch-all for Mozilla 0.8. If you have a bug or new feature information that needs to be added to the release notes please enter a small blurb of text and if there is a bug open the full url to the bug in question.
There are several new hidden prefs (UI will be added eventually) to turn off various annoying features on web pages: // Image animation mode: normal, once, none. user_pref("image.animation_mode", "once"); // Use configurable security policies to override popups, see // http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/components/configPolicy.html // Turn window.open off for particular sites: user_pref("capability.policy.popupsites.sites", "http://www.annoyingsite1.com http://www.popupsite2.com"); user_pref("capability.policy.popupsites.windowinternal.open","noAccess"); // Or turn it off everywhere: user_pref("capability.policy.default.windowinternal.open","noAccess"); // Override popping up new windows on target=anything user_pref("browser.target_new_blocked", true);
Don't add the animation pref, I want to get the ui done this weekend for .8.

Can we mention bug 68103 (21% speedup in Seamonkey...) in the What's New section?
Mentioning bug 67442 here as it occurs quite often. " 'open link in new window' doesn't work all the time ". http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=67442
'Compatibility Information' should have a windows subheading. It would also be nice if all of the headings that have OS subheading could have the subheading order standardized.
Incorrect wording: "If you share your Netscape 6 profile with Mozilla, you may be able to see headers for messages in the account's Inbox if you have previously checked one of these accounts in Netscape 6, but you will be unable to interact with the messages." should read "...you will *not* be able to interact..."

Transferring comment from bug 69176: Under International Release Notes/IMAP, there is the text: > You may see an extraneous vertical bar or a question mark in the window title > display of a header subject line. This is a misinterpreted Tab character sent > from an IMAP server as part of a line folding sequence. This problem does not > occur under a POP mail account. 1) The problem is no longer specific to IMAP, it also occurs for POP, NNTP, and local mail. 2) The bug number for this issue is 64948.
