Firefox Home 2.0

First rough demo on .. contains both live sync data and fake data.

Later today first meeting to figure out a more concrete plan for version 1.0.

Fennec performance issues (philipp)

  • Killed most history events >150ms
  • Broke up long blocking password and form events into smaller chunks. They're now bound by the synchronous I/O which is in the 500-2000ms range.
  • Pretty much any improvement at this point requires platform API support, e.g.:
    • async bulk APIs for forms, passwords, bookmarks
    • improved API for history (less callbacks, accept strings instead of nsIURI, etc.)
    • tailoured crypto API to encrypt and sign records

Fx4 Sync Blockers (philipp/rnewman)

  • Our last Fennec blockers landed on m-c last night.
  • fx-sync is on its way to retirement, for add-on bugfixes only. Long live services-central!

Notifications (Shane/Alex)

  • Full-circle workflow is now fully functional
  • Sync key exchange on multiple clients
  • Currently wrapping up encryption and HMAC support


  • Testing 1.7; extension and interaction with Fx4
  • Didnt know about python sync server going live on SCL2, before staging signoff. Need to force a few production test accounts for testing.
    • Did know about Account portal though, and signed off testing there.



  • Planning currently underway for Fx 5 and beyond within Product team. See #services for link.
  • Expect conversations around this in the upcoming days to jump start projects.




Notes and actions

  • SCL2 roll out went well. We have a few thousand users now.
  • Account portal is up and live.
  • PHX firewall issue is being monitored, not expected to have major impact on Sync users.
  • By next meeting we should have a project plan for Identity ready for review.
  • Fennec Perf - we have done everything we can from Sync's end. Other fixes will need changes to APIs Sync uses (like Password Manager, Places etc).
    • MConnor to follow up with Stuart to ensure we're all on the same page.
  • 1.7 QA sign off targeting tomorrow (assuming no major issues).
  • Jeff and Tony to figure out sign off process.

Follow ups from last week

  • SCL2 should be ready to take on live users this week (target: Wed)
  • Load tests are being run right now. Target for initial sync is 100K/hour.
  • Account Portal is going to be launched in production today and be user facing either Wed/Thurs.
  • Tomorrow's nightly is a good target for all the perf fixes to be tested by a wider audience.
  • March 15 is the target readiness date.
  • General consensus around the room that everyone is good and confident with that date.
  • An add-on update will be required to be completed by 3/15 as well to bring add-on users up to the latest sync changes and also auto disable itself on Fx 4.
