Description

8 years ago
I think bugzilla should make use of an add-ons grey list to let users know (prior to creating a bug report) that they have incompatible extensions known to cause XXX problem(s).  Triaging after the Firefox 3.5 release (just like after any release) produced A LOT of bug reports that in the end were all caused by incompatible extensions or extensions that were marked compatible but in one way or another were not fully compatible.

Having an extensions grey list as proposed in bug 502304 and making use of said list here on bugzilla prior to a user filing a bug would saved who knows how many bugs reports and time spent triaging said bug reports.  Of course this would only be shown for users in the guided bug reporting or whatever it is called.
