Bug Tracking using Bugzilla

Bug and Bugzilla

  • A software bug is an error, flaw, failure, or fault in a computer program or system that causes it to produce an incorrect or unexpected result, or to behave in unintended ways.

  • Bugzilla is a Web-based general-purpose bug tracker and testing tool originally developed and used by the Mozilla project.

Primary purpose is to track defects in Mozilla products, and to help developers resolve them
