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.

The tide might be turning but that's not because of Mozilla Firefox, it's more likely that more sites now work with Mozilla and that there are less severe crashes in Mozilla. The new button images also helps a bit but I still won't use Mozilla Firefox over the suite. The most important thing, and you know that, is the TAB UI, that's what make people switch, not the rest of the swablang.

Note that Ben was one of the many developers that didn't like tabbed UI's Now tell me, what make people switch? Oh yes, I do have my logs saved on our .gov server. Lets see what people say about that :-)

Also, Ben worked 5 years on a 'shitty browser', in terms of most Internet users, but now they should all switch to 'his product'. I don't think so. Like someone wrote: "The Suite Lives, or the Mozilla Foundation Dies" and I think he's right...
