Off-train releases

Current Shield studies:

  • search shortcuts in some countries moved from 10 to 90%
   * "make firefox default" prompt



firefox nightly summary score: 5.22

it is labor intensive to figure out what to file since the Moz Crash Reasons are often lumped together under one signature


firefox beta summary score: 9.02


firefox release summary score: 5.79

5094 continues to be the top content crash. Will reach again to our contacts to let them know the trend is continuing in 64

  • Investigating a new Win 10 crash - [@ shutdownhang | ntdll.dll@0x9e294 ]. Comments mention restarting Windows or

refreshing the Firefox profile


  • Crash rate is calculated based on usage hours (the time Firefox is actively used).
  • Usage hours will be significantly lower on Fennec than on desktop Firefox, so we can't compare mobile rates to desktop rates.
  • Release

fennec release summary score: 25.09

  • Beta

fennec beta summary score: 221.17 (Latest release is new (8 hours in field), numbers should be viewed with skepticism)

  • Nightly

fennec nightly summary score: 31.58

    • Volume is still fairly low in nightly, nothing significant to call out yet


read-only [catalin]


  • Fx 66 Milestones - mid Nightly (10 Jan) is too close to pre-Beta.
    • QA proposal is to make mid-Nightly optional for Fx 66 - discuss about this with develoment team and decide together.(depending on implementation and on PTOs during this cycle)
    • higher risk features can still get extra testing
    • other features will only be tested on one platform for Jan 10 like a preliminary sign off but not a full mid-nightly round of tests on several platforms.
    • only one feature is new, others have been through nightly in Firefox 65 cycle.
    • Liz will follow up and modify the schedule


Aurora / Dev Edition


read-only [catalin]



  • SignedOff 65 Beta 4 - status GREEN

Mobile Stability

SUMO Report / User Advocacy


  • [wlach] - doing some nightly analysis to try and understand mission control results better:
    • it appears that we may be significantly over-reporting the number of usage hours on Windows, which probably means the true crash rate on Windows is higher than it appears in Mission Control right now
    • other news is mostly good: accounting for the above, have similar numbers of users on each platform (windows, mac, linux) as on releasem have thousands of users on each platform, a good proportion of users are on a fairly recent version at any given time
    • full report here: (warning: kind of slow to load)
