Issues (Firefox)

We decided to make Category:Page display a subcategory of Category:Issues (Firefox), and put all other articles in Issues (Firefox) directly.

Is "Issues" really a good categorization? People looking for info aren't looking at things in the form of Tips/Issues/Configurations, they're probably looking for things based on feature, like Pop up blocking or Extensions. I propose we get rid of the Issues category and move all its articles into feature-based categories under Firefox (or directly under Firefox if it's not related to a feature or there aren't enough issues for that particular feature).--Np 15:10, 21 November 2005 (PST)
The Issues category has both proponents and detractors; there has been a long and thorough discussion about the categorizations, going back almost a year. (See Rules/Categories, its Discussion page, and the linked archived talk.) It was decided that editors should be expressly encouraged---even mandated---to place any article which is an Issue into both the Issues category /and/ a semantic category such as Extensions, Installation and update, Configuration etc. This instruction is even in the Rules. I don't think there's a problem with the Issues category provided that its articles are also categorized more semantically. --Mozcerize 09:18, 22 November 2005 (PST)

Other category suggestions

Web annoyances

Could include articles on animated images, popup blocking, flash blocking, etc. (Maybe this category could merge into "Page display"? Though I quite like "Web annoyances myself.)
