Friends of the tree

Current status and discussions

  • use to communicate version 38 issues
  • JoeS1 What should we do (if anything) about the failing tb31.8 builds. Should we just forget about them, or just postpone trying to build. My personal opinion is we might lose the ability to build tb38, and that's more important
  • We need to enable update for 31.* users ASAP. I've not received contrary feedback from drivers other than the proxy crashes, so I recommend we enable updates starting today at 25% rate. (wsmwk)

Critical Issues

Leave critical bugs here until confirmed fixed. If confirmed, then remove.

  • status TBD bug 1176399 Multiple requests for master password when GMail OAuth2 is enabled
  • Someone needs to add additional main thread proxies to the migration code.

removing from critical list/fixed:

  • status TBD bug 1174797 Add a cookie exception for GMail OAuth
    • Does not affect unthrottling since no effect unless someone tries to use OAuth. Lightning has an example of how to fix this, so should not be difficult.
  • bug 1131879 - Disable hardware acceleration (HWA)
  • 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.
  • (will not block) bug 1175051PAC/socks proxy not used for TB38 IMAP
