#1 Very nice indeed!

In fact, that is something I would like to see on mozilla.org ... I fear that many people are looking for this or other information to be found on gemal.dk and similar sites at the mozilla.org site without luck. Wouldn't it be good to at least have a Mozilla-approved list of key sites likes this maintained at mozilla.org? Of course the site to be on top of that page would have to be mozillazine.org (is it anywhere mentioned on mozilla.org?)

Yes, I think that Mozillazine.org is mentioned. For instance, when Mozillazine.org was having its drive for donations, I think that was put on the main mozilla.org page.
#13 but as a valuable ressource ...

what I meant is that it would be helpful to have a list of valuable ressources there. There are many sites that kind of do what users might expect at mozilla.org but they are nowhere mentioned in this context at mozilla.org to my knowledge

Does http://directory.mozilla.org/Computers/Software/Internet/Clients/WWW/Browsers/Mozilla/ count? (on directory.mozilla.org aka dmoz.org)

It would be very nice and helpful after split Mozilla into separate browser, email client, composer, calendar, etc. present installation options including not only these well known components but also various add-ons with many (or all) pieces like speellchecker, HTTP Headers console, etc... probably grouped into packs (Web developer pack, Advanced pack, ...).

This is an interesting suggestion. Of late there has been a lot of hoopla over *enterprise* level products , and making Moz something like that is possible. It does have what it takes to be an enterprise level software, well , almost. There are inherent problems with Mozilla too, but seperating the different components, can help create a leaner mozilla. I guess the mozilla guys can think about this.

What is the difficulty?

Apparently the code wasn't made with this in mind - someone has already looked into it (The details are in the bug report)

What do you not like about Mozilla's js console?
Tuesday April 8th, 2003 8:49 PM
Where do I start? I can't easily copy just the url that points to the problem file. It does not clearly differentiate between errors belonging to different documents. Sometimes it has no scrollbars (known bug, but will anyone fix it? ;) )
That's as a user. As a developer, the consoleservice API has a lot of issues; I keep looking for time to revamp it some....
