#1 m12 on debian

I realize that this is not the proper place to report bugs, but...oh, M12 rocks my world by the way...anyway, that sidebar is something that I always minimize whenever I launch the browser. The change never seemed to be persistent across invokations -- but I noticed something wierd: if I have the panel disabled via the View-->Panel menu entry, and the browser *crashes*, the change is persistent.

P.S. Posted using M12 installed via apt-get.

#2 Sidebar

Its a annoying "known bug". And there are 56 bugs filed with the keyword sidebar (as of this post).


PS:does anybody know when docshell will be enabled? Or is it enabled already?

#3 What's docshell?

I was reading in the newsgroups about something called "docshell" but I guess I missed what it was...

What is it?

It's one of the interface (API) for Mozilla UI, I think. The reason I ask is that some of the bugzilla bugs have the comment that those would not be looked at until docshell is ready. The reason is that they believe that docshell would one way or another cause the bug to be fixed or invalid.

Perhaps those 56 bugs might persuade the Mozilla team to make the Sidebar *off* by default. It's an utter waste of valuable screen estate in my books and it's the first thing I switch off when loading a fresh build (yes, it comes back every time I run Mozilla :-( ).
