It's cool and open source and all, but Firefox 2.0 on Windows has
two horrible crippling bugs that have been there since at least
version 1.0. And a third new one, too.
focus bug. Ctrl-c copies text or URLs, except when it doesn't,
which is randomly about half the time in Firefox. This bug is three
years old. It was marked fixed a few days ago, let's all pray.
- Find dialog opens when typing ' (apostrophe).
Horribly annoying; you're trying to type a ' in a text box and it
opens some little window instead.
Apparently this is a feature that's enabled when you're
not in a text box, but it's broken and is enabled when typing text,
always on top.. A new bug in Firefox 2.0: sometimes a window will
randomly become sticky on top. Minimizing and reopening fixes it.
All of these bugs are fundamental usability bugs I run into daily
while using Firefox. And they're all particularly annoying because
in each case the app is not listening to user input. Why do they
release software in this condition? Why are these kinds of bugs in the
app at all? Something is deeply wrong.
