I was really stranged to find that... perhaps because of a bug? or was it intentional?, Mozilla Firebird reactes to the add.NetscapePanel function with an "Add Bookmark" dialog, instead of adding a Sidebar Panel (WebPanel it's called in FBird, i guess...). I have heard and noted that Sidebar Panels aren't fully implemented (the sidebar looks like a horrible imitation of M$IE's personal bars), but what I've never thought before was that it was going to react in a so incoherent way. It doesn't looks as a Linux-specific issue, but I marked it as LInux-only just cause I haven't tested it in M$ Windoze. If the idea is to implement a way of auto-adding bookmarks, I will be necessary to implement the M$IE's addBookmark function, as it's sadly a standard... Perhaps not recognized by the W3C, but every website uses it. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Try to add a Sidebar Panel in Fbird 2.Look what happens 3.Wow! Too much IEish, don't you think? Actual Results: An "Add Bookmark" dialog appears Expected Results: To add a Sidebar Psnel accessible, at least, via View-->Sidebar
it adds the sidebar URL version as a bookmark that is set to open in the sidebar. this is how the sidebar impl works in Firebird, whether you like it or not.
sorry for bugspam, long-overdue mass reassign of ancient QA contact bugs, filter on "beltznerLovesGoats" to get rid of this mass change
