Bugs that annoy Internet Explorer users switching to Mozilla (IE parity)
This is a tracking bug to track bugs that until fixed annoy IE who are just starting top use Mozilla.
Shouldn't the dependencies be the other way around, ie. this bug being blocked by the other bugs?
I just don't know what does it matter bug 61710 to IE users.
Summary: Bug that anoy IE users switching to Mozilla → Bugs that annoy IE users switching to Mozilla
Adding something that could typing, and especially correcting, URLs much easier bug 165472.
Depends on: 165427
Not sure of spme tech evangelism bugs should be in this bug not sure I was thinking only the very worst or ones that reduce functionality in Mozilla.
Adding NTLM authentication bugs (23679, 35159)
There seems to be a looooooot of bugs that annoy IE-users ;-)
Adding bug 47475 (Need "show-image" item on right-click menu) - this is really annoying bug. But I would prompt to remove bug 74241 - it's a bad idea.
Depends on: 47475
Adding bug 113591, when using IE in offline-mode i can easily see just by hovering links that they are not availabe (mouse pointer change), and if I click on one thats its not i get prompted if I want to connect. Nothing of the above happends in Mozilla.
Depends on: 113591
I wonder if this bug is morphing from _annoy_ IE users, to _identical_ to IE. For instance, bug 166518 is hardly "annoying". --> bug 166518: ToolTips should animate and not appear on the screen Before this bug gets too carried away, maybe we should consider tightening the focus a bit. :-\ There must be some other bug or keyword to track IE parity features (but not necessarily "annoying"). Kind of like KW = "4xp".
This isnt about Making Mozilla IE if it was maybe bug 51015 would be in the dependacys
I believe we should spend more attention to this bug since this will help Mozilla/NN on the browser gain more attention from people and market share.
Had to ad this one First time I open Mozilla I had Take a pill to calm down!!
Removed bug 61710, would be a good idea maybe when toolbar customisation comes, but nothing to do with IE, unless you have power tools for IE 5.
No longer depends on: 61710
I think the IE 5 "power tools" button whas why it was there
Please don't remove bugs that are fixed or resolved, it shows progress made on this bug. The dup that was removed was good because it was duped to bug 30431, which is already on the list.
Depends on: 144593
I was only removing bugs that have been made duplicate of worksforme
Adding bug 57607, which loads background images (they popup) when you change tabs or scroll background image into view.
Depends on: latebg
Bug 58305 is a IE parity bug that has been bugging many people using CMSs for a LONG TIME.
bug 177966 - Many people moving from OE to TB or Mozilla are complaining about it (moving watched threads to the beggining of the list)
In the Status Whiteboard field, "parity-ie" indicates the desired feature exists in Internet Explorer. This bug should depend on the most annoying of parity-ie bugs, and also other bugs such as problems with importing data from Internet Explorer into Mozilla. I'm not sure if this bug should also track annoyances with moving from Outlook or Outlook Express to Mozilla Mail or Thunderbird, since none of those are listed in the Summary and this bug is in the Browser Component. If it is supposed to, I suggest updating the Summary accordingly.
could we also add bug 87098? IE has the desired bahavior from that bug and i miss it.
Proposing bug 56314
Adding my personal #1 webmaster's annoyance, bug 38447 (Implement Handling of URI Values on CSS "cursor" Properties). The #2 annoyance (Bug 77790) seems to be already added.
Depends on: 38447
adding: bug 87098 proposed in comment #31 bug 56314 proposed in comment #32 bug 251784
What about bug 232895?
I propose bug 257895.
Bug 204519 would be a candidate imho.
Proposing bug 279246. This bug is important for marketing in Japan.
Just cleaning up this tracking bug. I removed all the duped bugs in which the dupe was fixed. And removed all other resolved bugs as they no longer need tracked since they are fixed or resolved as invalid or wont fix.
What about: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=259634 (No program icons in 98/ME, etc.) https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=154649
re: requests from comment 43, i added bug 171349 (in lieu of bug 259634) and bug 154649. re: kurt's massive cleanup (from comment 42) i'm not sure we gain all that much by not tracking the bugs, any more. isn't it nice to see all the progress we've made with all those bugs in overstrike ;) anyway i'm going to add back the following bugs because i think they still annoy former IE users and this is a good place for them to find them: bug 74241, bug 146799, bug 204519, bug 211092, bug 232895, bug 252275 for posterity, here are the remaining bug's that got nuked in kurt's massive purge that aren't already discussed: bug 7840, bug 18729, bug 23679, bug 30431, bug 32218, bug 35159, bug 57607, bug 58305, bug 69114, bug 72493, bug 75915, bug 89404, bug 98546, bug 103090, bug 106708, bug 111102, bug 113591, bug 114962, bug 125276, bug 144593, bug 170272, bug 173954, bug 186549
sorry about that, though I was helping by cleaning up and making the bug easier to follow. sorry for this comment also, just I never apologized last time.
another reason for keeping the resolved bugs on the list is that occasionally they are re-opened ( often an unintended regression - though I guess there are no "intended" regressions ). or a "won't fix" becomes a "will fix" - just my 2 cents worth
Since this is a "core" bug, can the title be changed from "Bugs that annoy Internet Explorer users switching to Mozilla (IE parity)" to "Bugs that annoy Internet Explorer, Outlook, and Outlook Express users switching to Mozilla (IE parity)" or should another bug be opened for the mail component? In particular, .eml handling and printing are real bugaboos.
Open another bug for Outlook. FWIW, we already have a tracking bug for Bugs that annoy Eudora users switching to Mozilla.
Bugzilla Bug 175787
(In reply to comment #53) > This one was missed last month. hrm... some fairly recent bugzilla update must have made it so that only the reporter and folks with special privs can change the DEPENDS field. i can't help, any more. alex hosking? you out there?
What would you have done if I was deceased?
Depends on: 175787
(In reply to comment #55) > What would you have done if I was deceased? We'd have less useless comments on Bugzilla.
Bugzilla Bug 137014 add "Print Frame" to frame flyout of browser context menu Bugzilla Bug 157334 IE6 3x faster than Mozilla, concatenating two local strings
Bugzilla Bug 296471 Richer focus model like IE Bugzilla Bug 225085 Firefox paint performance when scrolling page with flash is very slow compared to IE 6
added Bug 137014, Bug 157334, Bug 296471, and Bug 225085 as suggested by Worcester12345.
Bug 386871 should be added to the dependency list... "bad behaviour when cert's name components use different character encodings" IE converts the string, firefox doesnt, and so one secure site in IE is shown as bad/invalid secure site in firefox
added bug 248352 "When migrating bookmarks from IE, preserve subfolders sort order".
IE now allows setting the page of a new tab doesn't it? Shouldn't this be added?
Marking all tracking bugs which haven't been updated since 2014 as INCOMPLETE. If this bug is still relevant, please reopen it and move it into a bugzilla component related to the work being tracked. The Core: Tracking component will no longer be used.
