The auto-show is still in development over in bug 102832. Good places to try it out are Bugzilla buglists, the W3C, htmlhelp.com and many machine-generated manuals or documents, such as the GNU Make manual."

A user is a customer is a user is a consumer of Mozilla. Same thing, whether or not money is involved. The point is that it is wrong to say you are allowed an opinion unless you contribute. My company as an entity does not contribute, although I contribute personally through Bug reporting and through that other listed component of Evangelism, so I am entitled to an opinion - if indeed participation is some sort of entry qualification.

>If he is really interested he should be telling whichever mozilla contributer he is getting the software from.

I presume by "he" you mean me (TonyG). If I wasn't really interested I wouldn't be in here expressing a reasonable opinion and answering the replies. nor would I bother reporting bugs or trying to promote the software within the realms that I have some influence. >... whichever mozilla contributer he is getting the software from.

Not sure what you mean here but if you mean I should be talking to the owners of bugs relevent to my issues, then thanks for the advice, I already have on a few occasions through bugzilla and moznet. Ultimately the blocker is memory consumption and I know there is no point in going to anyone as the issue is well known and actively worked upon.
