Triaging bug reports

  • Unconfirmed DUPEME bugs - Someone thinks each bug here has a duplicate in the system. This needs confirming!
  • Unconfirmed Critical Browser-General Bugs - These bugs report crashes or major loss of function. They should be categorized and if possible reproduced.
  • Recent Duplicates - A cross-section of bugs recently marked as Duplicate. Use this along with Find-as-you-type to find commonly duped bugs matching certain keywords. Or, customize the query to search only a specific component for dupes. Searching for other duplicates is a great way to find out if an unconfirmed bug is a duplicate.
  • Popular bugs - Bugs with more than 15 votes. This is another useful query to use for finding dupes.
  • Very old unconfirmed bugs - Bugs that have gone 450 days without any change. Check to see if they're still relevant.
  • Recent bugs with worksforme comments - These are unconfirmed bugs where at least one commenter used the phrase wfm or worksforme. Try to reproduce and report your results.
  • WFM in most recent comment - This page links to bugs by platform whose most recent comment contained a phrase suggesting a worksforme resolution.
  • "Good First Bug" - These bugs are marked as being good learning bugs for people new to Mozilla source and patching. Find more candidates or try your hand at coding Mozilla!
