<h3>How to Write a Useful Bug Report</h3>

<dl>
  <dd>Useful bug reports are ones that get bugs fixed. A useful bug report normally has two qualities:
    
    <ol>
      <li><strong>Reproducible.</strong> If an engineer can't see it or conclusively prove that it
      exists, the engineer will probably stamp it <code>WORKSFORME</code> or <code>INVALID</code>, and
      move on to the next bug. Every relevant detail you can provide helps.</li>

      <li><strong>Specific.</strong> The quicker the engineer can isolate the issue to a specific
      problem, the more likely it'll be expediently fixed. If you're crashing on a site, please
      take the time to isolate what on the page is triggering the crash, and include it as an HTML
      snippet in the bug report if possible.
      
      (Specific bugs have the added bonus of remaining relevant when an engineer actually gets to
      them; in a rapidly changing web, a bug report of "foo.com crashes my browser"
      becomes meaningless after the site experiences a half-dozen redesigns and hundreds of content
      changes.)</li>

    </ol>
    
  </dd>

  <dd>Let's say you crash deleting cookies from foo.com, and want to write up a bug report:
    
    <dl>
      <dd><strong>BAD:</strong> "My browser crashed. I think I was on foo.com. I think that
      this is a really bad problem and you should fix it or else nobody will use your browser. By
      the way, my sister thinks your icons really suck. Oh, and my mom's home page doesn't look
      right, either, it's all messed up. Thx 4 fixing theze bugz."</dd>

      <dd><strong>GOOD: </strong>"I crashed each time when I tried to delete a cookie for foo.com, using Firefox 1.0.3 on
      a Win NT 4.0 (Service Pack 5) system. . I also rebooted into Linux, and reproduced this problem using the 20030608 Linux build.</dd>

      <dd>I looked in my JS Console and it said: invalid syntax ... in addneditcookies.xul</dd>

      <dd>
        <h3> REMEBER JS CONSOLE ERRORS ARE IMPORTANT! Look for error lines that contain the word "addneditcookies"</h3>
      </dd>
    </dl>
    
  </dd>
