QA Team Updates

Desktop (Juan)

  • Firefox
    • Fx27 on schedule for release.
    • Fx for Windows 8 Touch (formerly Metro) will ride Fx28 train. It will be on beta after merge.
  • ESR (mwobensmith)
    • Prepping for 24.3 release
  • Stability (KaiRo)
    • PushClipstoDT was a large part of the increased crashes in beta 27
      • Graphics card reset in windows makes Firefox crash. Have not tracked down exact range in nightly to find out what triggers this crash more often, but it even regresses more from 27 to 28 from all we know and is at >7% of all crashes on Aurora. We will change to new version of D2D somewhere down the road (Firefox 30?) but we want a stopgap fix for 28 - have contacted Milan and release managers to get this prioritized.
