Odd thing with nightly builds of Firefox?

    Hello!

    I am using nightlies (sp?) of Mozilla Firefox here, updating every 10 days or
    so. I download the latest nightly from 06/08/2004 (Friday), I know that FF
    0.9.3 is out, but the nightly identifies itself as 'Firefox/0.9.0+'.

    Q: if 0.9.3 is the latest, why is the nightly based on Firefox 0.9.0? Not that
    it's any problem, just wondering why.

    Make this 0.9.1+ ^^^^^^^

    > Q: if 0.9.3 is the latest, why is the nightly based on Firefox 0.9.0? Not that

    and also make this be 0.9.1 ^^^^^

    > it's any problem, just wondering why.


    Via 'about:' it gives:
    Firefox 0.9.1+
    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.8a3) Gecko/20040806 Firefox/0.9.1+

    Are you serious?? Try reading your other post to find the answer to
    this question. The answer hasn't changed since you last asked (a mere 6

    Hello people.

    Just downloaded the latest Firefox nightly build, to try to solve my
    extensions problem. The nightly has installed and works successfully.
    But one
    thing that I think that is strange:

    - When checking on the 'about: ' url, it says 'Firefox 0.9.1+', while the
    latest Firefox is 0.9.2.

    Here is what says:

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.8a3) Gecko/20040801
    Firefox/0.9.1+

    Q: does this represent any problem? (i.e. my FF is outdated)?

    Because it's not a new version. Version 0.9.3 *is* version 0.9.0 which
    has been patched/upgraded. And nightlies are always going to reflect
    the version they are based off of, that's why it says 0.9.0+ instead of
    0.9.3+
