  • bug 480533 About dialog now includes buttons for about/rights and about/contributors.
  • bug 502389 Updated our title handling so that we actually use the attributes we define on the window (this also helps improvement bug 481374 for the beta release process).
  • Did some playing around with Talos and startup time tests. Got the basics hooked up but TB wasn't fully starting up.
  • (Part of [1]) Considering integrating the mozmill into a "make mozmill" command, this would also be with the aim of running it automated and packaging as part of "make package-tests". It may require that we no longer run from the source directory.
  • bug 502616 Fixing up icons that we display on tabs.

Reviews and Driving

  • Fixed bug 475570, errors running urls when going online would cause us to lose offline operations for the current playback folder. Also fixed related issue where running imap url w/o a msgWindow would fail if we had a saved password but not a cached password (i.e., we hadn't run a url on that server yet).
  • Moved prompt for master password to before where we load tabs,bug 501212 to prevent multiple master password prompts restoring tabs.
  • don't operate on msgs in collapse threads in stand-alone msg windowbug 499020 and added mozmill test for same.
