Full Article Attached XUL Version of Most Frequently Reported Bugs Page Available

Friday December 6th, 2002

A XUL version of the Bugzilla duplicates report that doesn't require you to mess with your security settings is now available. Using a split-pane interface similiar to the one found in Mail & Newsgroups, the report not only lists the most frequently reported bugs but also supports updating the view of the data on the fly. A XUL-enabled browser is required and you'll need to grant the script enhanced privileges for it to work. The data can take a few seconds to load, so be patient if nothing seems to be happening at first. See the newsgroup message for more details.

#2 Answer "Yes" - or should that be "No"?

'Answer "Yes" when your browser asks you if you want to grant the script enhanced privileges'

Hmmm... I answered "No". How do I know what the actual consequences of answering "Yes" would be?

What could such a script actually do? Write data to my disk? Read data from my disk? Send that data somewhere?

How do I know which scripts to trust?
