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 dont understand why everyone simplifies computer users as either geek-mutants, or novice grandmas. Its not black or white, there's lots (and lots) of gray in between.

I've been hearing rave reviews of firefox at work. People who are not linux geeks. People I didnt personally convince to use firefox. People who probably dont even care what the heck a profile is. People who are not dumb computer users. People who have better things to do in life than configure their web browser. People with good computer skills, but not obsessed with them.

15 minutes is probably all the time in this world firefox had to make an impression (or probably even less). They switched. Nobody modified the IE icon to use firefox instead. They switched on their own. They're not going back.
