Feel free to add the ones you deem important. Prog.
Seamonkey parity isn't a stated goal or a desirable attribute for the Firefox project. There is no point to tracking WONTFIX bugs, unless you're looking to add fuel to a fire.
This bugs prevent YOU from switching. I have different issues: a) no search through the URL bar b) The mime-type of the helper applications are not listed in the preferences c) I want Seamonkeys Passwordmanager and not the one from FF No a single bug from your list is somewthing I need or want. I can't see a reason why you created this bug about your opinion. -> invalid
sorry Mike, it was a mistake to override your changes (mid-air)... Leaving depencys for the useless bugs to avoid more bugspam...
(In reply to comment #1) > Seamonkey parity isn't a stated goal or a desirable attribute for the Firefox > project. Since when is parity to any browser a stated goal? It's something potential switchers want, not something that *must* be done. > There is no point to tracking WONTFIX bugs, unless you're looking to add fuel to a fire. In fact there is. It shows which bugs have been the requested by users of other browsers, and makes it easy to find them for future re-evaluation. (In reply to comment #2) > This bugs prevent YOU from switching. Did you not read the last paragraph of comment #0? I specifically suggest other Seamonkey users to add their input. > No a single bug from your list is somewthing I need or want. That's why I encouraged users, like you, to add bugs they do need/want to the depends list. Unless Firefox devs don't give a rats ass about Seamonkey users, this input *can* be useful. Please re-open this bug. Prog.
So this bug was supposed to be some sort of giant tracker for seamonkey users to bitch in? That's not appropriate, or useful. If we decide we don't want feature/behaviour X, we're not going to implement it because Seamonkey users want it. Bugzilla is not a democracy, Firefox is even less of one. Decisions are generally based on the merit of the proposal, catering to a specific group of users isn't the answer. Related note, of the bugs that are still open on this list, all seem to be valid on their own, except for a couple that seem to be dupes. Tracking them in relation to a bogus issue that borders on flamebait (we've had enough wars in the 2.5 years this project has been really active).
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
> ... There is no point to tracking WONTFIX bugs ... > ... you're looking to add fuel to a fire ... > ... for seamonkey users to bitch in? ... That's not useful ... > ... a bogus issue that borders on flamebait ... Mike, how can you talk to people in such an abusive tone? That's completely inappropriate (w.r.t this: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/page.cgi?id=etiquette.html specifically). Is Proganthous, or am I, "bitching" users who post "flamebait"? Do you believe the fact that a bug gets marked INVALID is proof of a fault in the reporter's character? For now it seems you're the one fanning flames. Anyway, I tried using FF+TB on my work machine (a Pentium III 600 MHz), and the main thing that bothered me was the large combined memory footprint - there's no 'engine'/toolkit/xulrunner/whatever sharing (can't seem to find the relevant bug). There's also bug 270434 - middle mouse click in TB should open a new tab in FF. I'm not sure FF supports this, even if TB would try to do it.
Re: middle click in tbird opening a new tab in Firefox, that's pretty much close to impossible to do using standard system protocol handlers. Xulrunner is in progress, but it'll take time to mature, and there's a bunch of bugs related to that. As for what I said, it was at least in part a question, which selective quoting makes look worse. Providing a bug for seamonkey users to add their personal complaints about firefox is not appropriate for Bugzilla. The way the bug was filed was an open invition to collect a list of things that annoy seamonkey users about Firefox. Given the history of such issues, it isn't unreasonable to expect that such a bug would invite flaming/advocacy comments. Its happened before, dozens or hundreds of times. This isn't a discussion forum, this is a task management system. The bugs that are still open on that list aren't particular to Seamonkey users, so this is simply a matter of harvesting opinions, again not appropriate for Bugzilla. If you really want to argue Bugzilla etiquette, feel free to email me/catch me on IRC.
I added the bug Eyal Rozenberg wrote to the bugs this depends on. (Sorry I didn't write it previously.)
Adding Bug 258285 ("Find Toolbar sometimes pops up when entering arbitrary characters in form input fields, FAYT (find as you type) activated") I'm also changing the summary to make this a private meta bug, nothing more. If someone knows a better way to track a bunch of bugs in b.m.o (which all have a common issue) - other than to use b.m.o itself, please let me know. You might also want to remove yourself from the CC list. Prog.

(In reply to Rotem Liss, comment #10) > What about the votes list? With or without the votes, it doesn't really matter. For me, this bug is just the best way keep track of bugs that prevent me from switching to Firefox or annoy me when trying to do so. It probably has no other value, so feel free to move on. Prog.
Bugzilla doesn't exist for individuals to track bugs of personal interest to them. Removing yourself from the cc list of this bug doesn't preclude getting useless bugmail on the bugs you're adding to this list. Please stop adding bugs to this list and find another way to track things. You can build a query for Only bugs numbered: with a comma-separated list and keep that updated as a bookmark or a saved query against your account.
And will that query email me when specific bugs in that query are fixed?
