Site Suggestions

Tuesday January 8th, 2002

A few of you have asked for us to post a news item taking your suggestions for the site, so here it is. Tell us all your ideas for what we can do to improve the site. Anything you want we'll think about, but try to keep it realistic.

Just to keep you updated, one of the things we're planning on working on is getting the ChromeZone up again, if we can find some volunteer editors to help organize themes. If you're interested, please email me and I'll get back to you sometime this week.

UPDATE! Right now we're working on dumping all the tables and other old HTML within the site to both show off Mozilla's skills, and to get our file sizes smaller. If you're using Communicator to view the site, you'll notice everything looking pretty ugly, thanks to the poor CSS support it offers. If you're using IE, it'll look a bit better, but thanks to IE's lacking CSS2 support, the sidebar will show up incorrectly. We've completely redone the homepage and talkback code, and we'll be working on the forums next.

UPDATE 2! We discovered Google's great "Search Site" feature, and have added it. Right now it has most areas of the site indexed except news item talkback pages. It will start indexing talkback today, and will hopefully add all of the old items, in addition to picking up the new ones.

UPDATE 3! We've been working hard to get as many of your suggestions as possible implemented, and we encourage you to continue the feedback. You can check this article's responses for what items we have fixed, or are working on.

I think it is Password Manager that does this. Instead of looking for a field called "Login" or "Username", it just uses the first field on the form. You can see Bug 85777 <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=85777> for more details.

I and others believe that the Form Manager and Password Manager should have some better logic. For example, the Password Manager could search for a field containing "login" or "user", and if it does not find one use the first field as it currently does. The Form Manager saves a field named "Username" or "Login Name" as the Concatenated Name, so you cannot use the Form Manager on forms that don't work well with the Password Manager, or when you don't want to save the password -- see Bug 79527 <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79527> for details.
