Firefox upstream helper files against Mozilla Core product and not Firefox

Asked by Michael Rooney on 2009-03-16

If there is a bug in firefox (ubuntu) and you want to file it upstream, clicking "Also affects project" and then using the "bug filing form" files a bug against Mozilla's product "Core" instead of "Firefox". The default should be Firefox when coming from firefox, especially since there is no way to change it once at that page. I can't imagine that Mozilla wants downstream Firefox bugs coming in as affecting Core.

Assigning this to the LOSAs since it needs admin privileges.

This isn't a bug; the remote_product in Firefox is set to 'Core' for some reason (probably the script that identifies upstream remote_products got it wrong; it's not an exact science, unfortunately).

I'll ask an admin to change the product. The problem should right itself straight away.

Have changed the remote_product to "Firefox".

Thanks, Tom
