Details

Treeherder uses icons/buttons instead of text links for many features, much more so than TBPL. With intuitive icons this saves screen estate at minimal loss of understanding (presuming help & tooltips are comprehensive). However I find quite a few of the current icons hard to interpret - and judging by the number of requests for "where is feature X" on IRC, there seem to be others in the same situation.

This is a meta bug for issues related to this, which need no longer block if we can fix some of the worse offenders - even if there are still some open bugs under this left.

I have several concepts in my head for the Log viewer and Raw log icons, which might be the remaining offenders. We've addressed a lot of the other ones in other work afaik.

I'm not sure how many questions we are still getting in channel on "where is the Log viewer", or similar, since this Meta was opened in Aug. But if Log viewer is still an issue I can open up a separate bug for one or both of those.
Turns out we already had one, and I've just assigned myself to it. Bug 1057349.

I think leaving this open as a meta bug isn't adding much value. Let's track the individual bugs on their own.
