Current Release Critical Issues

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


important (but not top critical)

  • bug 1224846 (esr45) - TEST-UNEXPECTED-FAIL | toolkit/components/osfile/tests/xpcshell/test_read_write.js
    • Fallen?
  • status TBD - bug 1182629 - update to 38.1.0 from 38.0.1 re-enables disabled Lightning fixed?
  • status TBD - bug 1176399 - Multiple master password when GMail OAuth2 is enabled
  • status TBD - bug 1176748 - fix main thread proxies to the migration code (jorgk and m_kato helped in past)
  • proxy (eg causing foxyproxy problems)
  • topcrash bug 1149287 is ** 31% of our crashes** - see below (where?)
  • bug 1211291 (esr38, unknown in esr45 -- therefore obsolete? Can this be removed? I think so) - Folders are visible, but messages are not. (?related to bug 1211358 lightning chrome.manifest not updated in 38.3.0 ?)
    • nobody has a clue about what to do with this, leaning toward shipping 38.7.0 with not fix. (wsmwk) agree, ship without fixing it -- fixed in 45?
  • Problems updating to 38.6 to do with Lightning bug 1249894 and its five duplicates. Two users attached their extensions folder. --fixed in 45?
    • Isn't this the same as the one above, bug 1211291?

Jorg K

  • Landed
  • Investigating with Kent:
    • Endless "Attaching" bugs.


  • Enigmail/p≡p Update: Work is going forward as planned - Volker & Patrick just met. We are currently fixing bugs in the adapter. We have also identified the resource for the integration work - one of the key people of p≡p. We are making the necessary arrangements internally to free him up so that he can work on integrating Enigmail/p≡p into TB build.
