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.
Thanks for responding Boris, I (and I assume others) really appreciate you always having avoice in discussions with us regardless of all the bugs/hacking you do for Mozilla, thanks for taking the time.
>>That is PRECISELY what johann_p did. As you can see by the reaction he's gotten, that doesn't work so well. Not really, I've re-read over all of johann_p's comments, in case I missed something or it was a missconception, and including his first #8 I fail to see where he "Help out describing exactly WHAT you would like to see in Firefox post 1.0 that would allow you to make > the transition easier".
All his rants (which are good and valid) seem to be a critique on what Firefox is, what is was designed for, and the market it is made for. Not once did I see any really advice on what one could do to HELP suite users make the transition back over. Sure, he might not agree with the suite being dropped (if it ever is), but that is a totally different issue, Right now we are talking about Firefox 1.0 and the future. All his comments seem to be stuck back when m/b /Pheonix was born and I don't see their revelance now. Firefox is where it is, period, the only thing for us to do is embrace it if we want and help improve it.
I'd like too see actual detailed remarks on what he doesn't like, what could be improved, what suggestions he has for extension authors, etc. Just saying how bad an idea the seperate apps are, doesn't help Ben, me or anyone else using/developing/extension-writting for Firefox.
I guess all I'm asking for is cunstructive critisism as apposed to personal views and living in the past.
