Help should have a small icon associated with it, so a user can see the icon and
name in the Windows system tray. Other components have such an icon. The Help
window currently looks like just another Navigator window. It could be the case
that a user has to toggle back and forth between a Nav window and the Help
window, so having the icon in the syst. tray will make that task easier.

Joe ->  The help icons are ready to go for both mac and Win.  Can you take a look 
in the usual desktop icon folder for these?

cc'ing jj (as someone Marlon suggested is both helpful and knowledgeable about
this stuff). The patch above has the sys tray icon for windows, but I don't know
how to deal with the mac side. Can you help or let me know what needs to be
done? Thanks a lot

Woops. Sorry, jj. Mac doesn't need this after all, since it's just the sys tray
icon we're doing and not an application icon on windows.

adding help icon on windows

I don't see the patch for changing the window id, but if Ian did what he told me he did a minute ago, then sr=hewitt ;)

The change to the help window id is on the mozilla side. I've checked and there
is no other reference to or grabbing of the id in the UI, so requesting a=asa on
update to get the help.ico to show up in the sys tray on the commercial side for
the help viewer. TIA, Asa.

Though it's not a stop ship, I'd love to get this simple fix in. Adding nsbranch
to the whiteboard and figuring out who can nsbranch+ it on rudman's behalf while
he's gone.
Whiteboard: nsbranch

I will add nsbranch+ since this helps in usability when the user has the Help
window open along with other browser windows, etc.

Ian, this bug still needs a r/sr on the latest patch (above).

Is this fix only on commercial side then?  Shouldn't this bug be on bugscape?

If this is not a stop ship, then it does not meet our criteria for the past 2
weeks. Propose this one waits for the next boat.

It isn't a stop ship, but it's so bite-sized and innocuous and pretty-making
that I am going to call in and suborn the PDT for it today.  Hope that's OK.

removing nsbranch+ on this cosmetic fix.

Let's get this in on the trunk (pending any rules on checkin, if
any).  Perhaps we can try to get this one after its been on the trunk (no
promises, but more of a chance).

Comment 22

Sounds like usability/polish type stuff to me, and it hasn't been nominated by
anyone as stop ship type bug ... argh ... at this date ... i'd have to say no
<reluctanty> :-(
