Come on everyone's doing it. Get involved help out :) Mozilla has really started to roll so now is the time to get involved. If you dont you will will regret it later.

#2 1 year and still kicking bug butt
Tuesday March 6th, 2001 1:47 PM
Wow, it has been a year now of major bug butt kicking. We have recruited a lot of people who help with bug triaging, test case creation and much more.
What has changed? Mozilla is faster, sleeker. We have more bots than when we started. Bugzilla, however, remains fat, and a lot of work has to be done.
#3 So far so good but...

Maybe adding iframe support sometime son would be a good idea? Yes? No? Has it been marked as a bug yet?
Go to www.shacknews.com and see all the cool stuff they're doing with iframes that Netscape STILL can't do. :( Specifically the Flat and DThread options and click on a few sub comments to see what happens.

I'm not seeing any problems with mozilla's display. Can you be more specific.

I suggest filing an evangelism bug on this site -- since Mozilla does support iframes and the W3C DOM for iframes quite nicely, it would take the site authors very little work to make their site work with both IE and Mozilla.
#5 Join the fun!

Come on, folks, join Bugday! Although Mozilla is getting good, we still need lots of help. If you are interested at all in Mozilla, join IRC and help us squash some bugs!
Like ksosez said, you know you want to.

it is great works, though I am not participating in the development of Mozilla, I think it is really great work that will lead to unimagineable result and if I have time I would like to participated in the mozilla. work hard. you are great guys indeed. moreover, I would like to get some information about XSLT and Simplified Chinese condition of Mozilla.

the XSLT team is working very hard and they should be good to go by Mozilla0.9 (that's what they say :) I'm not sure about simplified chinese, though

The only bugs I could find in bugzilla is in the link below. The first bug needs someone with Win2K to check if the bug is still there.
The second one isn't clear whether if it is a editor bug or a view source bug (more like a editor bug to me though).

sorry, could you specify it?

The first bug http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=63965 is about Simplified Chinese display on Windows 2000. It seems that Mozilla crashes when one drags the scrollbar. Someone should test it again.
The second bug http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=64798 is about Simplified Chinese encoded documents not displaying properly in "view source". It mentions using the editor to create the document.
If you can, use Mozilla to test those bugs. Check bugzilla for more info.
#15 I will try it, but I have no Windows 2000...
Sunday March 11th, 2001 6:02 AM
I will try the second. And I have found that the font kaiti_GB2312 (楷体_GB2312)could not be displayed an edition of Mozilla sevral weeks ago. And I will test it on the latest version.
#8 Why IRC
Wednesday March 7th, 2001 7:11 AM
Why use IRC to chat?. Most people dont know how use Chatzilla. I think people would use and contribute more to bug day, if mozillazine would have a chatroom java applet instead of IRC chat. Most people dont use a IRC chat!!!!
#9 Check the mozillazine navbar
Wednesday March 7th, 2001 7:26 AM
We have a java chatroom applet. Click "chat" on the navbar. It loads a java chat applet which points to the IRC chatroom where bugday is held.

Do the Talkback "incidents", when Mozilla crashes, get seen by someone?
I'm asking this because recent Mozilla builds have been crashing a lot, usually when I close a window with CTRL-W. So there have been LOTS of incidents reported by me. I haven't reported that as a bug because it doesn't happen all the time, and I haven't been able to pinpoint what causes it... but that's what the snapshots which are sent by Talkback are for, right?
#17 Re: Talkback

I've seen a fairly large list of the most common crashers, which was generated by the talkback releases. And they said that some netscape employees are working on the most frequent ones.
I crash all the time by opening a link in a new window. And I always send in the talkback info, when I looked at the list, I actually spotted a few of my reports. (It was posted to the newsgroup server a couple weeks ago)
