Reporting and Nominating Bugs for Mozilla Firefox 1.0

Thursday April 29th, 2004

Ben Goodger writes: "We're beginning the drive to Firefox 1.0 and we need to make sure that every bug people think is important is filed in Bugzilla and has a blocking0.9? or blocking1.0? request flag set. This will allow the FDT (heh) to develop an action plan for the milestones between now and 1.0, prioritize bugs and so on. It's essential that people start doing this now, rather than later, otherwise bugs might slip through the cracks!" Further details are available in Ben's posting to the Firefox forums.

Ben, I don't think your comment is good enough response to Johann's comment. He does make good sense, I am frustrated as well - in a way. I like the changes happening to FF, Thunderbird etc, but there is no concerted effort to increase the user experience. If you don't know what I am talking about, just try using Outlook with contact manager (<http://www.microsoft.com/…ger/prodinfo/default.mspx>). I know, Microsoft is powerful, can do a lot more theory, but what open source need is real productivity software which makes people get on with their lives efficently and effectively. I am not saying that FF doesn't provide that in comparison to IE, but there need to be bigger role all the open source projects need to fulfil, or we would just become playing catch up. Keep up the good work you are doing, you are on the right path, moving along, but refusing to listen to someone who has ideas and walking away from it by quoting a few articles, probably not a good idea.
