Mozilla & Gecko clones Today, Mozilla released the fourth beta of Firefox 4.0. After a period of what I would call stagnation, the Mozilla team are back on track with delivering interesting UI concepts. They were sensible enough to copy Chrome's excellent tabs-on-top UI, but have now also added something called Panorama, a new and very interesting way of managing your open tabs.

These are a few I bumped into and saved. If you asked hundreds of developers, the list would be endless.

Cannot select or edit or search generated content and alt text [GC] (1999-08-25)
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12460

All stylesheets are loaded regardless of rendering media (2001-05-05)
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=79021

Persist alternate stylesheet selection using content prefs (2003-08-18)
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=216537

Anything else, I gave up and went with other functionality. I don’t file many bugs because I have zero faith in the bug system.

Mozilla should spend a release cycle doing nothing but bug-bears (oldest bugs with the most votes). I’ve had to dump great, elegant pieces of code because of 10 year old Gecko bugs.
