Bugs and Improvements

To see existing open follow-up bugs, see the dependency tree.

Outright Bugs

  • "Why is this site blocked" button on malware site does not go to the SB diagnostic page for the site - Bug 476596

UE improvements

General

  • Do we want to provide users notification when the service is not running (because it hasn't had an update?)
    • Safari does this in the prefs, which is pretty useless
Consensus at the 2009-07-29 meeting is this is not needed for 2.0

Overlay

  • murph would like to right-align the buttons like a standard dialogue
Get Me Out of Here!
  • Currently goes "Back"
    • What happens if you arrive on a bad site via a redirect?
    • We should adopt one of the other browsers' behaviors
    • The button text doesn't give a clear indication of where "out of here!" is
  • Firefox goes "Home" (and to "Start" if "Home" is a blocked site)
  • Safari closes the page (button is labeled as such)
  • Opera goes "Home" (button is labeled as such)
Ignore this warning
  • Currently gives no warning/rationale why you should not do this before or when clicking (contra SSL error page)
  • Currently visible by default (contra SSL error page)
  • Safari gives a warning (malware only): [1]
  • Safari uses a button, not a link
    • murph would prefer this be a button, situated on the same line as "Get Me Out of Here!", and have "Why is this site blocked?" become a link

Site icon

  • FIXED We have a "blocked" site icon to land when Bug 441732 is fixed.
  • We should consider making the blocked site icon persist while on the bad site (along with the persistent "we really think this site is bad" bar) to counteract any site icon-recognition ambiguity.

Blocker Bar

  • FIXED We should adopt the Firefox 3.1 model where the bar also contains "Get me out of here" and "This isn't {a web forgery|an attack site}"
  • Opera has no blocker bar, but they do place a warning in the location bar (both on the blocker page and after clicking through).

Preferences UI

  • FIXED Bug 436968
    • Firefox has checkboxes for both phishing and malware
    • Safari and Opera have a single checkbox
