Can someone please add this patch to their next Win build?

Hi -

After submitting bug 204519 almost a year ago, a dev has finally created a patch. Thank you Simon! The change would add a Print command to the main context menu, adding a much needed function.

Would a Win builder be kind enough to enter this patch into their next build to test it out?

Many thanks! (And thanks to those of you who voted for it as well!)

if I get building working again (trying my luck with vs .net since gcc is just borked) I will include it.

I can't believe this response in the bug:

------- Additional Comment #5 From David P James 2003-05-05 19:31 PST [reply] -------

How often do you actually print things whilst you're browsing? For me anyway it
is at most a once-a-month event, not including printing from Adobe Acrobat or
other plugins. It's simply not a frequently-performed enough action to warrant a
place in the context menu (if it was, we'd not have any trees left in Canada...)

Recommend WONTFIX.


THIS is what really irks me. You say you do things a certain way, and then you are attacked for doing things the way you'd like.

Not a good way to win over people.

sasquatch - The nice thing was that several more comments were added to that bug report after his entry that essentially reiterated your feelings. I'm very glad that lots of people posted in favor of adding this feature, and even happier that it is almost here!

bang - I would greatly appreciate it!

Great - I wait for 10 months for the bugzilla to be implemented, and in the last week someone writes an extension for it!

Since bang can't include this patch, would another builder (mmoy? bluefyre?) try it out please?

This is today's trunk build: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.8a5) Gecko/20041014 Firefox/0.9.1+.

I just installed it, and it works fine.
Although every day is Judgment Day, I nonetheless feel like a room without a roof.

bangbang023, maybe you suffer from https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=250392 ?
With the patch from that bug, I was able to build again with gcc.
