Also, Dan Parent from OEone noticed that typing chrome://messenger/content/messenger.xul in a tab loads mailnews into the tab! Same with Chatzilla (chrome://chatzilla/content/chatzilla.xul )."


#21 outliner status

What's the status on converting stuff to use the outliner? History is converted, right? Same for thread pane and folders in Mail & News. But bookmarks and preferences is not. I've read the main bug for bookmark conversion to outliner but the last comment there is pretty old and there has been no update on what's going on.. Any ideas?

Personally, there are two important issues I see with this: 1) consistency. Now bookmarks doesn't FEEL and LOOK the same as history. 2) Performance..

In my own "score card", converting all trees to outliner is top priority. I know it doesn't work like "you guys did tabbed panes but didn't convert bookmarks to outliner?!" - they are not necessarily the same developers so one isn't away from the other. I can also imagine that the people who are responsible of doing the conversion also are responsible for about a gazillion other bugs of the same caliber.. So.. don't take this as whining.. It's a status update request. :)
