General Topics / Roundtable

  • [mconley] MyQOnly (WebExtension that puts review count in the browser toolbar)
  • [mconley] In this recent bug, I made RemoteWebProgressManager transfer listeners between process flips
    • This means that nsIWebProgressListener’s attached to <xul:browser> will survive remote-to-remote process flips. But they’re lost as soon as they cross the remote-non-remote boundary.

  • (from Mossop and Gijs) - If you need a true binary file, TextDecoder does NOT work. Use File.createFromNsIFile(certfile) and then a FileReader (reader.readAsBinaryString(file)) [mkaply]
