Firefox has just set browser.xul.error_pages.enabled to true in bug 216466. Should we do the same? The biggest issue would probably be bug 290219.
(In reply to comment #0) > Firefox has just set browser.xul.error_pages.enabled to true in bug 216466. > Should we do the same? We've been discussing the matter a few times internally on IRC, and we always thought quite positive, given the main issues are resolved. So I guess if Firefox people think it's goood to go, we should as well. I don't think we got more users risky of filing a load of bug reports than them ;-) > The biggest issue would probably be bug 290219. I guess that's an issue for Firefox as well, so IMO if they're happy for now to enable error page despite of it, we shouldn't worry as well.
We shouldn't be exposing a checkbox in the UI that breaks thing (and disabling JS breaks a lot). So bug 290219 should block release or we need to workaround it (disabling JS disables XUL error pages). I noticed that bug 216466 also lists security bug 292624 as a dependency.
ajschult, so whay does Firefox enable error pages by default then?
becaue they're either unaware of the issue (no mention of the bug in bug 216466), think it can be fixed in time or don't care. We know about the issue, I see nothing to suggest the fix would be simple (also nothing to suggest it would be hard) and I care.
Meanwhile, bug 290219 has received blocking 1.8b4+ and bsmedberg is saying that he'll probably fix it along with the security bug, so that looks hopeful.
Flags: blocking-seamonkey1.0a? → blocking-seamonkey1.0a+
I think we should enable this on trunk and for alpha in any case, we can always turn it off again on branch for beta and/or final when we still have too big open issues to ship a polished product with it. I think though that we want wide testing for it to catch all those issues.

I even got reports now that apparently error pages seem to work with JS disabled even if bug 290219 is not marked fixed yet... This would be one reason more to turn this on for Alpha and get testing on those things.
