Week 5: Watching a User in Bugzilla

Starting from December 11, 2007 to December 18, 2007, I set my Bugzilla@Mozilla account to watch Myk Melez, a staff member. It appears that Myk is mainly involved with the following Mozilla Products: Toolkit, Firefox, Bugzilla,, and Core. Although Myk was only assigned to six out of the 45 bugs that I observed, he was heavily involved with several bugs for many different Mozilla product components as summarized below.

Toolkit: XUL Widgets, Storage

Firefox: Bookmarks, Preferences, General, File Handling, Places, Location Bar and Autocomplete, Phishing Protection, Password Manager, OS Integration, Session Restore, RSS Discovery and Preview, Page Info, Microsummaries

Bugzilla: User Interface, Administration, Query/Bug List

Core: Embedding: Docshell, SVG, Editor, GFX, Layout, Build Config, Plug-ins, Widget: Gtk, Networking: Cookies Developer Pages

Based on my observations during the time period mentioned above, I noted that Myk was assigned to the following bugs:

Bug 406697 – Can't load the correct bookmark in sidebar after opened another page in it.
Bug 407910 – clear site-specific preferences when clearing browser history
Bug 395638 – don't provide sorting options in Applications prefpane
Bug 395637 – sort alphabetically, but with common types on top, in Applications prefpane
Bug 408389 – Live Titles don't have selection
Bug 403565 – Old page gets resized when browsing to a new one

Can you clean this up so it doesn't waste so much space on the planet (i.e., the whitespace)? You don't really need to link to all these, but could just talk about them. Thanks.
