Reporting and Nominating Bugs for Mozilla Firefox 1.0

Thursday April 29th, 2004

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.

I don't know the technicalities of the extensions. But I can see that they give you control over the browser. Control that is easy achievable. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't it enough to have a notepad and some knowledge of javascript+API reference to create one. Control and easyness to create are going to be the keys. What's missing right now is a good reference, tutorials.

The barriers for using ActiveX controls are higher.

One intranet example from my work. I need to display a confidential document. It can only be read. It cannot be saved/printed/copied. It's just one small example that may or maynot be possible to solve with an extension right now. I'm waiting for firefox1.0 to start playing with it. Small examples like this will make my life a lot easier.
