Reporting and Nominating Bugs for Mozilla Firefox 1.0

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 use QuickSearch ( <http://www.squarefree.com…lla/quicksearch-help.html> ) to search for bugs. The other popular methods are <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/query.cgi> and <http://bugzilla.mozilla.o…query.cgi?format=specific> .

This one was tricky to find, because I didn't know the term for the thing that tells you your download is complete. I ended up using 'firefox download votes:3' and reading through 27 summaries. <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=229062>

> There is no "OK" button to dismiss the Download Manager.

It's a window, not a dialog, so it doesn't have an OK button. I didn't think there would be a bug on it, but there was. 'ALL firefox download ok' turned up <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=233975> .

> Pressing enter does not dismiss Help/About.

I found <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=216722> with 'ALL firefox about focus'.
