Feedback Summary (Cheng/Tyler/Matt)
- New tab broken by add-ons, still working on finding all the responsible ones and blocking but we did block an old version of Ask Toolbar which should help.
- HP Simple Pass (fingerprint-scanning & password management) broke in 30 and is EoL so no update coming. There's a company that should be making a replacement add-on that we're reaching out to.
- Crashing is up due to third-party things. Work is ongoing to address this.
- We'll be keeping an eye out now that we've pushed this update out to everyone.
- Release is SMOOOOOOOTH.

Market Insights from the Market Strategy Team (Kev)
Marketing, Press & Public Reaction (Arcadio)
Questions, Comments, FYI
- It looks like approximately 20% of requests for complete updates of 29.0.1 came from users who should have been using partial updates. Filed bug 1025048 to investigate.
- The l10n dashboard now allows you to select sets of data that you might be interested in. https://blog.mozilla.org/axel/2014/06/17/create-your-own-dashboard/ talks about that.
- Jeff Beatty and Axel Hecht are working on getting desktop lagging localizations to update on 31 and 32, piggy-backing on adding a bunch of them to Fennec. We also work with communities not being able to update to remove them from the web, and get users updates to supported builds. That'll affect teams that can't commit to a milestone at which they want to be caught up. It shouldn't affect a lot of users, though.
