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.

If you're looking to influence the design stuff that's happening right now, then it's too late. Possibly you might be able to influence some stuff further into the future.

Design suggestions are occasionally listened to, not so much only if they coincide with what is planned in terms of design, but only if they coincide with the developer's view of what their target market wants. The target market, AIUI, is not businesses or geeks who have used the Mozilla suite previously, or the limited number of people that want to try something innovative and different - it is the home desktop user who knows enough to be download and install their own browser, and wants something they can immediately be comfortable with, that's better than the browser they're using now (generally IE, of course).
