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.
That's just a cheap hack that uses the Windows native scrollbars rather then Mozilla's internal ones. It may be good for now, but eventualy that debug menu will be gone and you'll have to deal with the gfx scrollbars. According to the bugzilla report they have checked in some ne code that may help this problem, but we'll have to wait for M15 to see.
