RE: Dealing with old bugs


In this particular case, I’d ask in the bug if the situation is still reproducible with modern versions of Firefox. If you don’t get an answer in a few days, close it with a comment asking the reporter to reopen or file a new bug if they’re still having the problem. (You could likely get away with just closing the bug and leaving the comment to reopen/refile, but it’s nice to give a chance for them to speak up first.)

Subject: Dealing with old bugs

Hi all. What's the best way for a Bugzilla newbie to help deal with old
bugs which are suspected to be invalid or dead? For example, 984152
hasn't been touched for two years, and doesn't have a huge amount of
details to help with confirmation. It reads like a feature request
rather than a bug as well.
