  • FIXED Simplified Chinese bug 1174580 - Not display GB2312 encoded texts correctly
  • FIXED by AMO block proxy not working bug 1175051 and probably related crashes
  • FIXED by disabling Outlook/Eudora import completely busted: bug 1175055.
    • Someone needs to add additional main thread proxies to the migration code.
  • status TBD bug 1174797 Add a cookie exception for GMail OAuth

Round Table

Jorg K


  • bug 1176719 - Add missed Win10 media queries. Should land on ESR38 (Bug 1172240 regressed the menubar appearance on Win7/8 Classic).
    • I see now bug 1172240 - Add Windows 10 media queries hasn't landed on ESR38 but needs to be because core has landed the win10 media queries.


  • bug 1174580 GB2312 fixed
  • some taking care of the tree
  • reviews
  • had a baby girl!
