I'm filing a meta-bug to track the various bugs filed on the link toolbar.  The
cc list of interested parties is based on the autoshow bug...
This should cover all the dependencies, add 'em if ya got 'em...

Any reason why the default qa contact for UID can't be qa for UID bugs?
As this is a meta bug, moving to Tracking.

Adding dependency:

Bug 103062 - "Alternate Stylesheets should appear on link toolbar"
Depends on: 103062
Depends on: 103183
adding bug 103204: link toolbar does not work with frames
Depends on: 103204
Depends on: 103223
No longer depends on: 103223
Please include dependency to good old bug #2800 to make this tracking bug an
easy access point to all bugzilla discussions about link UI implementations!
OK, made this bug depend on bug 2800 and bug 87428 (the two bugs for the 
original implementation).

ok. this time they're going back in!
OK, sorry for the spam, but I'm trying to put the deps back to the right value
and bugzilla/nav4 aren't playing nice. Trying in Mozilla.

These are the six bugs that I consider to be the most important in immediate
Links toolbar development, and I strongly encourage the Links toolbar community
to tackle them as Job 1, in the given order.

102992 - Link Toolbar should be converted to XBL
102990 - Site navigation toolbar should be inside content frame
102905 - Site navigation toolbar doesn't update when tabs are switched
102987 - Use more secure way of getting current document URL in links toolbar
102909 - No keyboard access to link toolbar
102912 - E-mail links in link toolbar are not marked

I think this bug should become a component.  Tracking a huge number of bugs 
using dependencies only makes searching difficult, and especially when the 
feature used to have a different name.  cf -turbo, quick launch, and bug 75599.

I agree Jesse, 

Anything with more than say 20+ bugs for stuff like this maybe componentizing
them would be helpful for mozilla and querying in the long run.

bug 138496 is filed to back out the linktoolbar from the 1.0 branch. I hate
doing it but it seemed to be the consensus in discussion with drivers. If you
don't want it to happen, discuss it in the bug - or better yet, fix bug 102992.

Here's a usability issue, albeit not a bug:

Things like "Author", "Search" and "Copyright" is placed under the dropdown "More", together with "Bookmarks" and "Other versions". I don't think they should be grouped like that, because if "Search" is used on *one* page on a site, it is likely to be used on *every* page on that site. Thus, the "More" button remains clickable all the time. But "Bookmarks" or "Other versions" may only be present on individual pages. But since the the "More" button is clickable all the time, the user won't get any hints when there is extra info available.
