I'd like to comment on a Nightly crash report the browser I'm using generated.

After experiencing these three crash reports in a row, the two most recent were while trying to view a video on a youTube user's page. I started Nightly a fourth time, and set it to "restart with add-ons disabled" after loading it on a blank page, after it restarted the youTube video played successfully without errors. This apparently (from my point of view) stopped whatever was causing these crashes to repeat themselves every time Nightly was started. I don't know if this information has anything to do with the actual Nightly crashes but I wanted to let you know this information in case there was anything relevant for diagnostic purposes.

thanks geoffhyde, you might also want to put this information into bug #1063064, which has been filed a short time ago for the same issue.

I would do that but I'm not really good at writing things up properly when it comes to technical things like these bug reports, so that they actually understand what I'm trying to say.

I'll give it a go, though! Wish me luck!

Okay, change that: Apparently the site where i report bugs isn't the same site I just logged into to post this comment about these bugs. For some stupid reason there are multiple different bugzilla reporting sites associated with Firefox, Nightly, et al, and logins on one site don't transfer to another site.

I don't know why they do things that way around here so if you want to post a comment referring them to my comments here over there on what you're trying to get me to report to, I'd appreciate it.

There is only one site that Mozilla uses as a multi purpose tracker to keep track of reports (that can include bugs yes) and that is https://bugzilla.mozilla.org

support.mozilla.org/questions/ is a well as first part says a Support forum.

Well if they don't read my post in this thread here about it, they're on their own, good thing they're programmers.

The trouble with the Mozilla sites currently is that there are multiple sites each with different logins. If they decide to solve that problem and make it so that logins for one site work for the other related site then I could simply post comments about bugs where needed without all of this hassle I'd currently have to go through and would save me having to have passwords for all these Mozilla sites.

Well they may use different software or such to run it so they may not be cross site compatible. Mozilla does allow the use of say Personas for some Mozilla sites.

The only sites I can think of at moment where you can share a login with for example is https://addons.mozilla.org/ (where many mostly third-party Extensions and Themes and such are hosted) and the support forum for it at https://forums.mozilla.org


And just to make sure, the *.mozillaZine.org is not a part of nor run by Mozilla.org (as some make the mistake due to mozilla in name) so it would not share a login with any mozilla.org site.
