Forgive me, for i cannot tell whether this is a Bugzilla bug or a mozilla.org configuration issue. If you go to the duplicates.cgi page, which is called "Most Frequently Reported Bugs", bug marked WONTFIX do not display. This is incorrect behavior for the following reasons: 1. One of the stated purposes of this page is to prevent duplicate bugs. If a bug is reported frequently enough, a user should be able to find it on this page regardless of its status. (Note that other types of closed bugs, such as FIXED do appear.) 2. People can use vote counts as a criterion for whether or not to fix keep a bug as WONTFIX. The diminished visibility of the bug when it disappears from this page discourages people from voting for it. 3. The page is something of a guage of things users want changed in the project. Absence of a frequently duplicated WONTFIX bug give the false impression that nobody wants this particular change.
Sorry sorry sorry. I am so embarrassed. Somehow i got confused about dupes and votes. Please forget you ever read this bug.
