a typo in a comment in widget/windows/nsWindow.cpp
Hello, i want to fix the bug and it's my first open source contribution. So, please help me how o find the file to be edited and how to submit the patch :)
Sure! Have you gotten the code? The path I provided to the file is relative to the folder that contains the code you obtained.
no sir :(
Then you are only a couple steps away from making a contribution. In order to make a change to the code, you'll need a copy of the code to change. Here are some instructions on how to get started with that: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Developer_guide/Source_Code/Mercurial Please let me know if you have any questions.

Comment on attachment 8700462 [details] [diff] [review] Fixed typo Review of attachment 8700462 [details] [diff] [review]: ----------------------------------------------------------------- That is the point of a [good first bug]: it should be just an exercise to get used to the tools. It's supposed to be dead-easy :) Now you need to amend your commit to put r=chutten in the message (so they know who to come after with the pitchforks if this comment fix breaks the build), reupload (marking this one as obsolete, and putting review+ on it yourself), then put `checkin-needed` in Keywords so that the sherrifs will pick it up for integration. Most of these things are automated if you use mozreview (http://mozilla-version-control-tools.readthedocs.org/en/latest/mozreview.html), which is worth your time to learn for your second bug :)

Created attachment 8701879 [details] [diff] [review] Fixed typo and added r=chutten checkin-needed
"checkin-needed" needs to go into the Keywords field, otherwise perfect job!
