Previous Actions

Schedule Update

  • FF16 Aurora was unthrottled (desktop/mobile) last Friday

  • bug 530074 – Crash [@ StrChrIA ] from winsock and shlwapi.dll (LSP, evil *x86.dll module, or BitDefender)



  • FN16/17 crash stats seem a bit high [akeybl]
    • there were some fixes in the nightly, (3 specifically)... 2 need to drop off from aurora/beta as well.
  • see Platform Meeting for details on specific bugs.
  • Arm v6/v7 separation is harder to detect. Kairo has a script to look at which separates by devices.

Currently there's a small number of crashes for Armv6 since it's not widely advertised. This will change once we advertise it more.




Verification Needed

  • bug 767232 – Installing Firefox using the installer should ensure and app.update.enabled is true for the default profile

Top Issues:


  • Hanging, crashing, not responding and excessive system load. [1]
  • There are quite a few reports from these users that the issue was NOT happening in 13 [2].
  • Around a 20% increase in mentions of crashes, freezing, or unresponsiveness in 14.0.1 compared to 13.0.1 [3]
  • Many indicate that having multiple tabs open is a significant contributor [4]
  • Firefox 14.0.1/Bit Defender. Does not happen in 15 Beta. [5][6]

Netflix on Mac

  • This is still one of our top issues for the week. [7] [8]
  • Reports indicate that even updating Silverlight causes poor performance, jerky playback and sound issues. [9]
  • Possible unconfirmed workaround is go to finder-->applications, right click on Firefox, click on "get info", and check the box that says "open in 32-bit mode"
