Problems with Netscape 6?

Wednesday April 5th, 2000

We felt one of the items in the previous article's talkback forum was important enough to mention here. Asa Doltzer writes:

"Mozilla testers should continue to report bugs to Bugzilla. Netscape 6.0 PR1 testers should not report bugs to Bugzilla. Users of Netscape 6 can at any time open the Help menu and choose Feedback Center to fill out a Feedback form. This form will be submitted to Netscape rather than Mozilla. I repeat, please do not submit bugs you discover in the preview release of the Netscape browser to Bugzilla, use Help -> Feedback Center. "

This is something very important to remember, as Netscape 6 bugs could be because of Netscape branding, and thus do not apply to Mozilla, or the bugs may have been already fixed in the current Mozilla nightlies.

I don't know where you got that idea from, but there has been lots of efforts to get Moz's code base meet some of the goals where Moz and NS6 have in common. NS6 beta1 is just like another milestone build except with AOL/NS fluf. When NS releases beta2, it would have to get another branch from Moz. It would be real dumb to use NS6b1 as a code base for NS6 as many of the features that is still to come is in the Moz code base.

I might get worried about NS6b2 though. That's when the supposed feature freeze is suppost to happen.
