What do you think?

Wednesday October 10th, 2001

Many in the community have been discussing what components nightly builds should include by default. We wanted to find out what you think? Are you happy to see the new Javascript Debugger included in the build? Would you like to see other things shipped, like the DOM Inspector? Or would you rather only see the browser shipped, and make the rest, like Mail/News, Chatzilla, and other components, optional add ons?


#26 OFFTOPIC - Users' XPIs

I am sorry for posting this here, but it could fit into the topic: as I now have a reasonable connection at school, I get a Windows nightly almost daily. But the bad thing is, that all the additional goodies are packed into the mozilla directory, not into the user profile! So I have to (if I want to have a rather clean _install_ of mozilla) remove the mozilla directory, then install the nightly and _re-download_ all of the goodies - these are OptiMoz and sometimes the Toy Factory Theme. This is also really bad on Linux, as I must start Mozilla as root to install anything XPI-like!! Can someone give me a few hints on how to avoid this? Are there any bugs filled for this problem? Thank you.
