           Summary: Usability: Bug report dialog should close after I click
                    Report bug
           Product: kde
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: unassigned-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: ahmedbassi gmail com

Version:            (using KDE 4.0.98)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

I guess from a usability point of view: when a user clicks report bug and it invokes the browser .. it is expected that he will proceed on the bug report using his preferred browser

however the bug report dialog does not close automatically but is kept open .. and when you return to the app you find that the dialog is still there to close it manually with the 'close' button.

The launch bug report button assumes the function of an ok button and I think it better closes the dialog after it invokes the browser

am I correct? What do usability guys think?

I'll take a stab since I am pretty much a noob at this .. but I guess it is here


line 398

00398 void KBugReport::accept()
00399 {
00400     if ( d->submitBugWeb ) {
00401         KToolInvocation::invokeBrowser( d->url.url() );
00402         return;
00403     }

The function returns and that's it .. probably adding a close() after the return will solve the problem correct?
