For once a German blog post: Einfach für Alle warns against the Firefox 188.8.131.52 update, since it seems to contain a few CSS bugs. I haven't seen this warning anywhere in the English blogosphere, and all documentation is in German.
The problem seems to be that floats with negative margins aren't cleared properly, and aren't properly contained in their parent element, either. (Source)
Good to know.

Brendan Eich on Mozilla 2 and what went before. Expected release date: 2008.
So the goals for Mozilla 2 are:
- Clean up our APIs to be fewer, better, and "on the outside."
- Simplify the Mozilla codebase to make it smaller, faster, and easier to approach and maintain.
- Take advantage of standard language features and fast paths instead of XPCOM and ad hoc code.
- Optimization including JIT compilation for JS2 with very fast DOM access and low memory costs.
- Tool-time and runtime enforcement of important safety properties.
I don't quite get all this, except for the "simplicity" bit, and I like that bit quite a lot.

Stuart Langridge explains a Mozilla event that fires when you scroll with the mouse wheel. It's a bit silly to use a separate event when the scroll event is also there, but it's useful to know that you can actually detect the mouse wheel in Mozilla.

Eric Meyer says Mozilla's print CSS compatibility sucks. From my own experiences I completely agree.

Overview of what's new in the Firefox 1.5 beta

Scott Andrew discovered that Firefox does support
document.all, which it's supposed to ignore. So Firefox now executes supposedly IE-only code branches.
Annoying, but since we haven't needed
