'Netscape Channels" replaced by Open Directory in commercial builds


(SeaMonkey :: UI Design, defect, P3)



(Not tracked)



(Reporter: cmaximus, Assigned: vishy)


The Open Directory link on the Personal Toolbar should be a Netscape Channels
pulldown (i believe) in commercial builds

excerpts from bug 20866 :

Netscape channels don't belong in Mozilla

Fix checked in.  The "Channels" menu has been replaced with a single link to
Open Directory.

much like bug 20861 I see that 'Channels' has been pulled in favor of the 'Open Directory'
link but this has happened in the Netscape Commercial build as well and AFAIK that should
not be the case, reopening.
checked with 2000011314 WinNT commercial build with clean install.

That's a new bug, then -- this bug is for a problem in the Mozilla build, and
yours is for a problem in the commercial build.
