Week-Long Effort to Clean Up Bugzilla Crash Bug Reports Starting

Sunday March 28th, 2004

In a weblog posting, Asa Dotzler announces a new effort to triage crash bug reports: "I'm going to be working to organize a week long bug cleanup effort for reported crashers. We have many hundreds of crashers reported in Bugzilla which need confirmation or resolving. With Talkback in 1.7 beta, we can easily get stack traces for reproducible crashers and that should help us resolve quite a few duplicate reports. Starting with Tuesday's BugDay, and going through the end of the week, I'll be available to help newbies and veterans alike as we slog through hundreds of bug reports and try to get a real fix on known stability problems in advance of 1.7 branching. If you're interested in being a part of this effort and need help getting started, join us on Tuesday in #mozillazine on"

#8 Crashes not much of a problem these days

For what it's worth, crashes aren't really my problem these days. I can't remember the last time it happened. I'm sure it does once in a blue moon, but so rarely I forget that it even used to happen. :) Good job!

What I really want to see is snappier UI in the unix-versions. I use Windows at work and FreeBSD at home. The UI in Windows is HYPER-responsive compared to the unix one. You'd think that based upon the architecture, it'd be the other way around, but I suspect that the visibility of the Windows platform means there's more focus there. I could be wrong. But I wish there weren't all these tiny lags as I do stuff (open tabs, switch tabs, try and open another tab while a different tab is still loading, open new windows, open dialogs/prefs, work with bookmarks, etc).

I'm not bitching, just trying to provide feedback. :)
