    Can someone explain to me why bug 234223 (XML …) doesn’t appear in the Fx “regressions by votes” ? ’cause right now it has already 8.

    (link is
    http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/
    buglist.cgi?
    product=Firefox
    &keywords=regression
    &votes=1
    &resolution=—
    &order=bugs.votes%2C%20bugs.bug_id
    )

    It didn’t have the regression keyword. Now it does.

    If the installer builds are broken, shouldnt you not link to them then?

  4. Jean-Marc Gillet Says:

    Thank you.

    Funny : I just thought that the list was again wrong because I still didn’t see it. Then I took a look at the bug form … FIXED ! :-)

    The installer is back on my desk now.

    I must have misunderstood you Jean-Marc, downloaded the 16th build (installer) and i got the XML error again.. I guess it will be in tomorrows build.

    These three were fixed and will not be present in tomorrow’s builds. :-D Finally, there’ll be a reason to upgrade my build! =D

    I have that very same image in my screensaver slideshow.

  8. Cell Says:

    This sounds like a good build, with the new dialog and one of the very annoying bugs fixed. :)

  9. Jean-Marc Gillet Says:

    Jose, actually I wrote without thinking enough (yeah I know, it’s not a surprise :-) ).
    I should have written :
    “The installer *will* very soon be back on my desk [as soon as it includes the fix]”.

  10. Josť Jeria Says:

    by the way, new set as wallpaper is bloat. I mean, how often do you set a wallpaper? And if i wanna stretch it or whatever, then i do that it the display properties.

  11. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    Some people, such as my brother, set new wallpapers often. The commands needs a confirmation dialog, so why not inculde useful options in the dialog? And why force users to go to display properties every time they set a new wallpaper?
