How to install ChatZilla?

by grandpaw7 / October 29, 2004 1:26 AM PDT

I would like to make some use of the Mozilla's ChatZilla chat program. But I can't figure out how to install it.

To install it, Firefox sends me to .There it says to click on one of the install links "below" to install. The only thing I see below is for installing cz0.9.66 revision. I don't know if this is a full install of ChatZilla or not, and whoever wrote the page was careful not to say. Anyhow, I clicked on "install 0.9.66" and waited a while till I got a message that Firefox had prevented its download to protect my computer. That's mighty nice of Firefox, but my goodness it was Firefox that told me in the first place to do the install.

So, I don't know how to use ChatZilla, or whether there is some reason I shouldn't. Can you help?
