Notices / Schedule

Firefox Development

Firefox Developer Tools



  • Graphics BugKill day was last Friday, October 7, 2011.
    • We closed 308 bugs out of the 493 total we touched - about 63% close rate. (There were bugs we didn't touch but did open; thus this is a maximum.)
    • Anecdotal "evidence" says that older bugs were closed with a higher frequency than newer bugs.
    • We found some patches that had languished for 4+ years, many without review requests (i.e., a failure on our part to notice them).
    • We found other bugs that had languished for a long time for no good reason, and created patches for them.
    • Still TBD: where we go from here for our remaining 2000+ bugs.





  • New DOM bindings for NodeList and friends landed! (peterv, bug 648801)
  • malloc() call site responsible for 3% of our mallocs found and eliminated. (jlebar, bug 688619)


  • Initial patches for camera on desktop.
  • Have reproducable testcase for appcache bug!




  • Native UI Status Update [1]
    • using birch twig
    • `front end` team formed
  • Flash work progressing, expected to be "usable" in nightlies (on phones) this week




- What you can see in the video: loading multiple tabs, tab titles, progress notifications, status notifications, mouse (hover, scroll, drag, text selection), keyboard input, focus change, killing the content process, restarting the content process, non-remote tab not affected by process kill

- What else is in being worked on at the front-end: session restore, context-menu, spellchecker menu, network prioritizer, back/forward history, panorama. See details at

Tree Management

  • Rev3 -> Rev4 Snow Leopard update:
    • Testing new r4 machines in parallel. There are 64 machines in production, hidden on tbpl. Can see test/talos results by adding '&noignore=1' to tbpl.
    • When r4 machines are known to be good, will turn off r3 snow leopard machines.
