My M14 talkback binary that I downloaded from the release directory identified itself as "Build ID: 2000022916" I think it should identify itself as "Build ID: M14". Yes, this is trivial, but it is also ANNOYING for us testers who have 5 or 6 different binary builds on our systems, after running moziila for a while. we forget which version we're running, so when a bug occurs, we're going to say that we're running NIGHTLY BUILD 2000022916, instead of saying that we're running M14. Saying the latter would make it MUCH easier for other people to reproduce the bug. Besides, SOME kind of graphical distinction should be drawn between NIGHTLY Builds and Milestone builds, since Nightly builds often suffer from one kind of temporal problem or another...a "stupid" bug or breakage that can be fixed within a day or so. Milestone builds shouldn't suffer from those problems, and any bugs detected in those should be analysed more closely, they are indications of the "deeper" bugs. Finally, it gives novices a clear indication about whether this is a nightly build or a milestone build.
Since M14 has been released I don't know if they will make this change but changing component to Build config just in case.

This isn't handled by build config.
Sorry, the buildid is for talkback purposes, and having buildid's based on datestamp are the right way to handle talkback reports. The *right* thing to do is display the user agent, and maybe make the buildid incorporated there. The next set of M14 release candidates will have the correct user agent. Marking wontfix.
