Re: [orca-list] Firefox 3 find and alt tags

You've put your finger on the key question. My guess was that it might
not be a big deal, but that's only my not particularly educated guess.
Obviously, if it requires more in the way of coding and testing, it
would need to be an FF3++ issue.

Would we consider it a bug that FF3 isn't searching alt tags already? I
suspect only bugs are being addressed at this stage in the FF3 release

I don't think that this will be trivial to fix. I'm guessing here, but I 
think they will have to do a lot of work on their parsing and mapping 
methods.  If anyone knows the code, please comment.

I think it is too late in the cycle to call this one a bug, and I don't 
think it will get addressed in this cycle even if I do call it a bug.  Just 
my thoughts...
