Mozilla 1.0 Definition

Tuesday October 16th, 2001

Brendan Eich, mozilla.org's Technical Bigshot, today posted what mozilla.org believes are the criteria to release a 1.0 milestone. The posting outlines exactly what Mozilla 1.0 is (and isn't), how mozilla.org plans to get there, and what the timeline to get to 1.0 is. Also, it explains why a 1.0 release is needed, and why it's not just another milestone.


#45 Other 4.x features

Some other features present in 4.x that I would like to see brought back in time for Mozilla 1.0 are addressed by the following bugs.

Bug #41888 - Quickfile: 'File' bookmarks to cascading submenus, to file in folders (on the fly)

Bug #83803 - Unable to drag from attachment panel to save when reading mail

Bug #24867 - UI for FTP upload not implemented

There is another 4.x email feature that I used multiple times daily, but can no longer do in Mozilla -- selecting multiple email messages by clicking and dragging the mouse. Now with Mozilla, I have to use a combination of mouse clicks and the shift key to accomplish the same task. Another negative about the way this works in Mozilla is that at least one of the email messages gets openned; when selecting a group of messages with the mouse in 4.x, none of the messages are opened. I have not been able to find a bug related to this. I am not sure if that is because none exists or because I am not adept enough with Bugzilla queries to find it.
