for bug 46000: the application will run out of memory and crash on MacOS after going to only one or two webpages the _first time_ the app is launched. Subsequent launches of the app will be ok. This has to do with registering all the components and not unloading them.
bug 38524: - using the Helper Applications preferences panel to specify a helper application for a given MIME type will cause the preferences dialog to lose focus, but continue to remain modal to the browser window. The result is that the browser must be shut down and restarted. The helper application specified will be added however. This could be a windowing issue. Also, helper applications appear in the tree but text is not displayed, so the list appears to be empty when there are actually entries there. Users can see these entries by clicking in the tree and using the arrow keys to navigate through the available types. For bug 29403 When a user drags any kind of link (whether from the content area or the proxy icon to the url bar), dropping it into bookmarks (e.g. sidebar panel, window) is problematic. The drop action can appear slow, and the bookmark does not pick up the title or other information correctly, and may refuse to present a context menu. I suspect the issue here is with the bookmark being incorrectly or incompletely created when the drop occurs. For 38524: In the Internet Search sidebar panel customize dialog, when a category is renamed, the name display area is not updated to reflect the new name.
Bug 46284 1. Launch Seamonkey 2. Choose Preferences from Edit menu 3. Select Software Installation from Category list 4. Click Install Package button 5.

bug 1740 in bugscape: Currently, we can't download more than 10 files with the Mac installer due to an indexing problem with the IDI file generation. For PR2, this means users can' get the Japanese language pack while installing (the 11th component). However, users can get the Japanese language pack from Netcenter by going to the 'View|Set Language/Region|Download More' menu per Tao. The latter needs to be release noted for PR2.
bug 39948 If you start Netscape 6 with no profiles, after creating the profile, the profile name is selected but the Start Mozilla button is still disabled, and so are the Rename and Delete profile buttons. Change focus to 'available profile' area or select the profile and buttons will be enabled.
