The component description for docshell currently reads: Previously Webshell. For bugs in the code functionality of Docshell This does not explain to somebody who does not know what docshell does when they should file against this component.
that seems simple enough to me, if you don't know what webshell or docshell are, you probably don't want to file bugs against them =)
Can you provide a link to this text? I've been searching, but I can't see what you're referring to.
It's here: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/describecomponents.cgi?product=Browser Scroll down to Embedding: Docshell
Reassign to Bugzilla. A better description: Docshell acts as the glue that initiates and monitors document loading and associates documents to their view for rendering,
