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.

I think a better summary is "I'll go spend my time on something else if spending it on Mozilla is just wasting it."

Note that johann_p makes a very good point -- there are some things you can do in the suite that are very desirable that you currenty can't do in firefox/tbird but that you _could_ do. For example, fill out and POST a form in a mail message. Instead of dismissing such concerns, time would be better invested in improving the DDE verbs the apps know about (and their equivalents on other platforms) to make it possible to perform a POST request from another app....
