    Firefox 0.8 released, Thunderbird 0.5 released

    "A big day in Mozilla history" is what one Mozilla developer described it as, and he wasn't far wrong. Today sees the release of Mozilla Firefox 0.8, the latest release from the Mozilla group. Previously known as Firebird, the browser's 0.8 release was delayed due to copyright issues, but the group has now settled upon the Firefox name. It comes with many new features, such as :

    * Easier Downloading
    * Installer
    * Pinstripe Theme
    * Extension UI
    * Better Bookmarks
    * DOM Inspector

    But... Thats not all! The group's product Thunderbird 0.5, their popular mail client has also been released! New features in this release include multiple identities per mail account, making it easy to have several email addresses which end up going into the same account; Secure Password Authentication using a new cross-platform NTLM authentication mechanism for POP3 and SMTP; A new Palm Sync Address book conduit is now available for 0.5; A new, improved version of the offline extension is now available for 0.5; Improved Spell Checker including a new US dictionary; Ability to paste names or addresses from a spreadsheet directly into the addressing widget of a new compose window. Thus, a very large amount of fixes.

                        RT: It happened to me too as I was downloading and checking out the themes
                        Restart the browser with the default Firefox theme and see if the bars come back.

                        PS: You use overnet too eh

                          Some themes are corrupted .... it happend to me as well .... I prefer to run firebird with its default theme now .... I think default is one of the best anyway.

                            ^ I prefer the Breeze theme, I think that's the best, I can't wait for it to be released specifically for firefox.

                              for this release it is better to a clean install rather than ugrade the old version.
