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 think there is useful criticism in there, even if it's expressed as stuff that's failed to happen so far, rather than being expressed as stuff that would be a good idea for the future.
He mentioned integration with the mail app - for example, submitting HTML forms in emails from the email client, or sending complete pages by email from the browser. He mentioned extensions - the fact that they are of varying quality, have overlapping functions, and it's difficult to work out which extensions you might need, and which versions are compatible with which browser versions. The fact that there are seperate GREs for Firefox and the aviary apps.
I agree there's little point in arguing about whether these things should have been given a higher priority in the past. But they're all still things that could be worked on in the future.
