With today’s WINDOWS build I observed the Problems described in Bug 1300530 – “Edit As New” opens broken HTML Composition Window with missing contents, possibly add-on-related. and others. It would be great if some of you could help to narrow down the roots of the problem.
I still report new bugs I find with status UNCONFIRMED, even if (after careful investigation) I am pretty sure that the report is concerning a real bug and complete enough so that a developer can take on. Reason is that I believe in the two-man rule. Often a review by an other user adds information, may be concerning additionally affected Operating System or an aspect of the problem not yet mentioned or something else. But in the SeaMonkey project, due to very limit “human QA resources” and the lack of interest of most SeaMonkey users to contribute to the project, the bug review process is horrible slow, even Bug reports what can be reproduced easily do not find a user who is willing to do a test whether he can reproduce the problem.
So in future I myself will change bug status to NEW after 2 weeks (or so) of waiting if I think that all requirements for starting bug fixing process are fulfilled and nobody confirmed the bug. But, of course, it would be great if YOUR help would make superfluous this proceeding with my own “confirmation”. Be courageous and grasp the nettle of confirming some [easyconfirm] bugs.
I read that the (apparently very outdated) Swedish SeaMonkey Help will be replaced by the en-US-Help starting with SeaMonkey 2.46. I don’t know how the situation is for the very few other Help localizations, and even the en-US-SeaMonkey-Help isn’t in a good shape. Here fortunately we have some progress, some (even new) developers are helping to do some bug fixes. Unfortunately there seems to be more or less no interest at the localization teams to port the fixes to their localizations.
My current appeal: We need some volunteers who will do translations for a new chapter in Composer Help as fixes for Bug 1247386 – SeaMonkey Help composer_help.xhtml: Chapter “Adding Mathematical Formulas to Your Web Page” missing in Localized Composer Help.
What about you?
