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 knid of understand the convenience thing, but I think that's very biased toward the view that people *want* to use all the different components. Whilst that's broadly true for people here, it's not true for someone who's already committed to a different mail client (say).

Having said that, I still hope that the promise of the GRE hasn't been entirely abandoned. I think the idea of a 6Mb runtime and 1Mb apps (from the point of vew of the downloads) is very appealing.

It's also true that individual applications have features the suite lacks (a non-sucky form manager in Firefox, for example).

I don't dislike the suite but I think its UI suffered under the hands of the Netscape UE people and I think it's been designed to work in a terrbbly insular way.
