make RC2 not suck
This is a tracking bug for bugs that email@example.com consider important to the success of a Mozilla 1.0 Release Candidate 2. Please do not change the dependencies in this bug unless you are a driver.
I would like to nominate these bugs for RC2. bug 135250, bug 135204, bug 132242, bug 133250, bug 127842, bug 105698, bug 32218, bug 103530.
bug 54701, bug 2920, bug 60981 and bug 119796 are my favs. agreeing on Bug 135204, Bug 32218 and Bug 133250. all seem easy enough to fix and are real annoyances.
Everyone: Please don't nominate bugs by adding a comment here! It generates worthless spam for everyone on the CC list. Thank you.
Whiteboard: PLEASE DON'T "NOMINATE" BUGS
I have no problem with people making comments / nominations here. I don't consider it worthless spam. This is my bug and if you don't want the spam then don't cc: yourself.
Whiteboard: PLEASE DON'T "NOMINATE" BUGS
Asa: Oh, I see -- I assumed it was the case based on the absense of a reply to bug 134771 comment 24 (where a commenter writes that as he understands it, the "make x not suck" bugs are not for nominating, and that he expected that a driver would correct him if he was wrong). I humbly apologize and will try not to interfere with your business in the future.
I nominate bug 138169 (Mail -> Compose -> Security help window not a stand alone instance) (sorry if its a bit early to nominate it, I only reported it today and its still unconfirmed, but if it turns out to be a duplicate then I nominate whichever bug its a duplicate of instead)
It's been suggested that the linktoolbar should be dropped from 1.0 due to perf issues (bug 102992) that aren't going to be fixed in the 1.0 timeframe, and also the linktoolbar+tabs bug (although this has a hacky patch available - I forget the bug number). Although part of me would love to see this get forgotten so that 1.0 does ship with the linktoolbar, I can't bring myself to let it slide in good conscience, because I know the drivers do want it backed out. I don't think there's a bug to do this right now, so one ought to be filed and added to the dependencies of this bug.
Adding 129953 from RC1 Not Suck - if we can stabilize it, or figure out why it works fine on trunk and not on branch - merge problems probably.
Depends on: 129953
Nominating bug 137706 as the bug 129953 is nominated too and it solves the problem only on Windows. Otherwise the RC2 wouldn't suck only on Windows.
Nominating bug 73712. Today when the buttons in the taskbar are small you cant tell the difference if it is the browser, mail, composer etc running.
I nominate bug 133580. Now it's not possible to access tiff attachments, and this can be a real pain for anyone that gets a mail with one such attachment.
I just filed bug 138496 to backout the linktoolbar. Consider it hereby nominated for RC2 :(
I'd like to nominate bug 129428. This is a dataloss bug, to be fixed by either disabling cut or enabling paste in bookmarks manager. (Important: do not test this bug except on test bookmarks.)
I'd like to nominate Bug #134535. This bug is where the live link to IE bookmarks is no longer working. A really visible effect of this is the %20's that appear in the bookmark list.
I nominate bug #126782 (I really hate it). And thanks for nominating bug #135455, it is really awfull :-)
Depends on: 126782
What about Bug 135570? That's the Win95-Installer bug, and I think think, it's a real blocker for all the Win95 users ...
Something needs to be done with bug 71359 or bug 76664. Everytime when I start Mozilla I need to choose my profile, because of that MozillaControl profile. I use the MozillaControl with Winamp3, RealONE and Windows Media Player. It would really suck when it won't be possible to ship some apps with the new Netscape that actually use Netscape instead of IE.
firstname.lastname@example.org: Why no start "mozilla -p Profilename" ?
I just want to apologize for my errors. I will not send any more comments on this bugs. Sorry. :-/
Nominating bug 28586, bug 60304, bug 62046, bug 71895, bug 76431, bug 85595, bug 91811, bug 93054, bug 94010, bug 98476, bug 117371, bug 118954, bug 120616, bug 123553, and bug 127112.
OK Matti, but I was used to open Mozilla using the Internet icon in Windows XP, so now I'll have to use a shortcut. I'll also have to remove the shortcut placed in the All Users desktop folder and put a new one in my own desktop folder. It might look childish, but some people do not even have access to those shortcuts and I hate the fact that the current Netscape comes with software that requires IE. I also beleave that it is very important for the 1.0 release that people are able to add an option to their programs to use Mozilla (instead of IE), without such problems. Otherwise, the number of programs that require IE will never go down.
nominating bug 124240 and bug 98749 both of which are fixed by the very painless two-line patch http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=74399&action=view which is attached to the first of those two (bug 124240). also nominating bug 79655 which is ADT3, NN4 parity issue, and has a patch: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=75174&action=view -matt
No longer depends on: 138666
m_mozilla: Did you mean to remove bug 138666 from the dependancy list?
matt: the patch attached to bug 124240 is not "very painless", it's downright incompatible. It doesn't matter how narrowly or (in your view) badly %s was defined by the code that implemented it, that code has been around a long time. Now is not the time to change it. We do not want to break all the users who rely on current behavior. You want compatible extensions supporting (a) multiple bookmark-keyword parameters and (b) the ability to repeat a parameter (which has no analogue in printf, so %s misleads). Invent new syntax based on existing precedent, that is backward-compatible. Do it fast if you want it for 1.0, get a real r= from the relevant owner, and an sr=, then we can talk. /be
I'd like to nominate Bug #133286. This deals with Mozilla users who also use Windows Media Player. The page doesn't repaint, and makes it look like Mozilla has crashed. This is especially important for Netscape as Media Player is bundled with Windows and it wouldn't look good if it made a mess of Netscape.
I want to nominate bug 135017. Many users see the problem that all tree related Menus doesn't work (Preferences, Mail folders) in Mozilla if you install over an older build (0.9.9) with the installer.
In bug 129115 comment 146, jesup says that bug is on the RC2 no-suck list, but I don't see it in the dependency list. I hereby nominate it-- I'd add it myself but I'm too young to drive. I also nominate bug 21762, which had 85 votes the last time I checked. Not fixing it would very definitely suck.
I second the nomination of Bug #21762. This is a big performance issue that Netscape folks should be very concerned about.
What I should've mentioned in Comment #30 is that Bug #21762 is a tracking bug. So Asa, or whoever, may want to go through the dependicies and find which ones have the most value for RC2 and/or the final 1.0. However, I would like to suggest that Bug #129115, Bug #117061 and Bug #136688 would be useful. Also, I notice that Bug #129953 is already on this list for RC2, which is also part of the #21762 tracking bug.
I nominate #133580 which is a blocker bug for many users (using tiff-attachments fails)
I'd like to nominate bug 125106, which made RC1 suck for JP/CN Windows users.
please consider bug 133351 (Bookmarks cannot be moved by drag in sidebar)
Please consider #35011.
Nominating bug 138436. This is a recent regression in the TextZoom fetaure that makes it pretty useless.
Animated GIFs (included on so many sites/portals) are causing major problems. Nominating bug 86319.
I would like to propose bug 130885, which makes browsing many popular SSL-encrypted sites impossible. Such sites include PayPal, etrade, and Wells Fargo.
How about bug 133250 - "Transferring data from..." remains on status bar Although just a cosmetic thing, it has become rather annoying :)
Seconding Bug 133351 in Comment #34 (can't drag and drop bookmarks in sidebar). It would give the impression of a low quality, incomplete product.
The bug I would most like to sse fixed is this 100% CPU usage bug ( Im sure there is several Bug IDs about it). All mine Moz builds has had problems when Moz app. is in the background and is being changed to the active app. Also, fixing bugs like bug 139679, bug 139699, Bug 139699 and bug 11210(still happens in recent W32 042403 build) would help making Mozilla look a little better. Thanks for letting us test such a great product.
I would like to nominate bug 137033, related to bookmarks and highlighting.
I'd like to nominate Bug #140176. It is a problem with "Keep Alive" functionality where that functionality slows Mozilla down to a crawl on some sites. Having said that, I've only seen this with TRUNK builds, I haven't tested with a BRANCH build yet.
It has not been confirmed yet, but I have filed bug 140591 which is a regression in the functionality of the feature "Create Filter from Message." So far I have only tested it on OS X branch builds, but the regression seems to have started with the April 19th build. Once this bug has been triggerred it is impossible to exit Mozilla cleanly. Thus I nominate bug 140591 for consideration.
I'd like to nominate regression bug 133217.
The trunk checkins for DHTML bugs like #117061 and #129953 has made Mozilla so much a better browser. I do do do hope that these fixes will make it into the 1.0 branch!? Maybe the goal is to make Mozilla a mainstream browser, but realistic we have to go for the "nerds" first, and they will demand functionally DHTML. Oh well the testet trunk build (2002043008) is a bit unstable, so I hope it is some other checkins that are responseable for that :-/ Btw. bug #129953 is already on the "depends on" list for this bug, but bug #117061 are not.
I'd like to nominate Bug #134535. It has a quick, albiet temporary, fix via a PREFS.JS entry. This could go into RC2 until a permanent fix is found.
Just a note for those who do not understand: RESOLVED / FIXED does NOT mean it is fixed for RC2. It means it's fixed on trunk. The fixed1.0.0 keyword is the one you're looking for to see if it's fixed on the branch. So bugs up there that show with a line through them may not be in the branch. So don't take "everything is marked fixed" as an exit condition on this bug--make sure everything you see here has approvals and is checked into branch. bug 126829, for example, is checked into trunk but not branch.
I would like to nominate bug 140462 for inclusion in RC2. It already has a fix and sr, still needs r&a...
I nominate 138117... big problem in terms of disk space efficiency.
I nominate bug 140464. Minimal risk.
I would like to nominate bug 41555.
i nominate bug 135272. without it fixed, mozilla (expecialy the mail/news) is useless in BiDi locales (where the UI is aligned to the right)
I would like to nominate bug 88239 fix is simple (2 lines) [low risk] checked into trunk 2002-04-23
I'd like to nominate bug 137836. Pretty visible, low risk. It's a simple fix (a couple of lines) that fixes the disappearing tab borders in classic theme. It was checked into trunk on 2002-04-24 and doesn't seem to cause any problems.
I'd like to nominate the following bugs: Bug 140088, "Chatzilla is crashing when switching tabs." Users who run chatzilla without the userlist visible are finding that they crash within minutes. This problem exists on both the branch and trunk. Bug 139316, "Crash involving js_ReportIsNotDefined()" The JS engine crashes when trying to create an exception object when there is a function on the stack with a large/deep object passed as a parameter. Both of these crashers are things I run into *hourly* when trying to run current branch builds, and both fixes will benefit from RC2 scale testing.
Please reconsider fixing bug 140462. It's a two liner, affects JS and DOM0. Without such a fix, it's very difficult to access members.xoom.it, which is not a top100, but is Italy's larget free web hosting site (i.e. affects lots of users). The patch from jst, already has a sr=darin...
I'm wondering if bug 32218 should be nominated. The sooner we get this done, the better off mozilla will be with all these licensing issues. Its been put back too many times.
Nominating <a href="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=134480">134480</a> for RC2. This is a big stopper for many people in using RC1.
Bug 90823 is an irritating one to us MacOSX users. The patch has already had review...it's been something they've been meaning to add since Netscape 6.2. -Brett
I would like to nominate bug 140944 (body.scroll* properties always return 0)
I nominate Bug #138094 which itself is part of Tracking Bug #142810. This is a critical problem when running Java as it causes the browser to hang. I'm seeing this on Win98SE with TRUNK and BRANCH builds 20020507. There is nothing like entering a URL and having Mozilla hang solid when you hit the Enter key. This bug also has "hang" and "topembed+" keywords attached to it.
I would like to nominate bug 30431 - "Intellimouse Explorer Backwards and Forwards button support." The bug was opened 2000-03-04 11:33, has 34 votes, and has a patch.
To help prevent profile corruption, we need a better warning in prefs.js against manually editing that file. Nominating bug 142590. The existing patch changes only the comment at the top of prefs.js.
No longer depends on: 142873
Re-adding 142873 from blizzard. Removed in mid-air collision with xah?
I nominate the following bugs: bug 32218 (Mozilla needs an updated splash screen) --> it is really time to fix it! bug 37589 (Strange dots next to Slashdot news headers) --> a patch seems to exist bug 62046 (ALT text isn't displayed when image loading disabled) --> accessibility flaws! bug 131106 (Bad behaviour of automatic reassignment of filetype handler) --> very annoying!
any chance to get Bug 61893 - Form data not being mailed when using mailto: in form action attribute (eg <form action=mailto:email@example.com>) [form sub] nominated ? its blocks 5 other bugs and is a serious advocacy problem
Wesha, feel free to nominate bugs in a commetn but don't directly change the depndancies.
Aaron: feel free to nominate bugs in a comment but don't directly change the depndancies.
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_activity.cgi?id=91417 I had that bug open before you erased that dependency, but added myself afterwards. You'd think that bugzilla would generate a collision, but I guess not...
What about 69070 ( or 91316 for DoS possibility). Mozilla still eats keyboard input all the time. (But, with rc1.0, we can KILL keyboard eating mozilla with mouse, it seems. Don't know why the well publicized DoS possibility has remained open. NS 4.77 on Linux has fixed this, it seems. )
#75 RC2 is out. This bug should be resolved fixed.
Aye, that it should.
