And just to clarify my last statement, as Bugzilla and GitHub behave slightly differently, you do go through the bug reporting mechanism under Bugzilla to file a feature request as well as a bug.

For a true bug, the radio button, This is a defect report, is selected while for a feature request the radio button, This is a request for enhancement, is selected instead.

If you pick "the wrong one" in the eyes of the folks at Mozilla, it will end up being recategorized by them.  But if you know you're making a feature request from the outset, it makes sense to identify it as such.  There are times (like this one) where one could argue that the line is far from perfectly clear.

Science has become just another voice in the room; it has lost its platform.  Now, you simply declare your own truth.
