"Location/Netsite/Address" missing from UI
Build ID: 1999092208 Platform: all As of this build, the label for the Location: control is missing! This is extremely confusing.
whoops, got the severity wrong.
The "Location" label for the location bar is still missing in the 1999-11-12-18-M11 nightly binary on WinNT. Scenario: Techrep: First, type www.whatever.tld into the location bar and hit [ENTER]. Newbie: What's a location bar? Techrep: Do you see the "Reload" button? Just below the Communicator menu? Newbie: Hmmm, ummm, oh, yeah, there it is. Techrep: Look just below that, you should see word "Location:" Newbie: Yeah. Techrep: Do you see the white box to the right of that? Newbie: Yeah. Techrep: That's the Location bar. Newbie: So, um, that's where I type, right? Techrep (studiously polite): Yes, that's where you type. Newbie: [hunt-n-peck noises] [time passes] Nothing's Happening! Techrep: Did you hit the [ENTER] key? Newbie: OH. ... I've had this exact conversation more than twice, nothing exaggerated for effect. I like the clean lines of the current UI myself, but for newbies, not labelling a vital UI component is ... how to say? ... problematic.
